Asian Lantern earrings
Our Asian Lantern Earrings could light your way! Well not exactly, these earrings are made to mimic a Asian lantern, which makes them fun and adorable.
Made from blue and white porcelain and red crystal and brown penshell these earrings are made to look similar to an asian lantern.
Porcelain- (also known as china or fine china) is a ceramic material made by heating materials, generally including clay in the form of kaolin, in a kiln to temperatures between 1,200 °C (2,192 °F) and 1,400 °C (2,552 °F). The toughness, strength, and translucence of porcelain arise mainly from the formation of glass and the mineral mullite within the fired body at these high temperatures.
Penshell are from a large saltwater clam family. They’re fragile and have a triangular shape that is long and has a pointed end; they also range in various different colors.
Crystal beads– Quite simply they are glass crystal beads. By cutting the glass in just the right way, internal reflection from inside the shiny surfaces of the glass cause the light to reflect internally. This internal reflection results in sparkle as the glass is tilted, adding to its beauty.
