The colored plumes on these earrings conjure images of the feathered serpent-Gods of Mesoamerican mythology. "Kukulkan" is a Mayan deity similar to the Aztec Quetzalcoatl. Since Quetzalcoatl is usually depicted with a green body rather than purple, I am naming these earrings after his less well-known counterpart.
These earrings will be made to order, so please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery. The earrings you receive may have slightly different proportions, a different number of "feathers", etc, but the overall design and colors will be the same.
Made with carefully layered sections of hand-cut rubber, these eye-catching earrings are inspired by the growth patterns of plants and animals. Each piece is lovingly hand made in the USA; as in the natural world, no two are exactly alike.
Lightweight, soft, flexible rubber over an aluminum armature. They are durable, yet extremely lightweight! Pieces are approximately 1 1/2 inches long. Recommended ear wires are hypoallergenic surgical stainless steel, and unlike silver, will not tarnish. Sterling silver, which requires more care, is also available.

I accept most forms of payment, including checks. Work on an order begins when payment is received, which in the case of checks (and echecks) means when the check has cleared.
I ship Priority Mail in a flat rate box or envelope, with delivery confirmation. Most of my items are made to order and can take up to 3 weeks to ship.
If you need something in a hurry please send me a message - my stock changes constantly and often I can fast-track an order at no additional cost.
If there is a problem with your order please let me know right away, I'm usually willing to work something out, whether it's an exchange, modification, or return. Orders, if in good condition subject to my evaluation, may be returned for full refund minus shipping costs.
Since everything is handmade, there are variations from piece to piece and nothing will look exactly the same as in the photographs. However, the overall style and proportions will be the same.
If you have any special concerns or absolutely need me to try and match an item to one of the photographs, send me a message. I can usually do that for no additional cost though it may delay the production time somewhat.
