These are Sterling Silver posts and are hand crafted by highly skilled artisans using sterling silver, fine braided wire, and kiln-fired cloisonné enamel.
Earrings come with a unique fact sheet about the specific specimen (dragonflies for example), information about the making of the jewelry and about using bamboo, a green alternative.
The unique bamboo box is engraved with the California State Insect and the Bohart Museum name. This makes a great gift for your DRAGONFLY loving friends.
Every piece of BAMBOO Jewelry comes packaged in an eco-friendly bamboo gift box lined with anti-tarnish fabric. Bamboo, though harder than oak or maple, is actually a fast growing grass which can be harvested every three to five years. The bamboo used for our gift boxes is plantation grown without the use of irrigation, fertilizers, or pesticides; nor is it a food source or habitat for endangered pandas.
Your purchases and donations support our education outreach programs. We educate over 10,000 students about insects each year thanks to your generosity.
