This long, organic, dangle earrings are made of tilapia fish skin, tagua beads shaped like plantains and glass seed beads.
They are so beautiful even the lizard is green of envy.
The tilapia skin is not fishy or smelly at all, resembles the lizard or snake skin and is used now in Italian high fashion as a cruelty free alternative against killing crocodiles for their fancy skin.
Tilapia farming is popular in Ecuador and Brazil, the fish filet is exported to the world as food and now instead of throwing away the skin of the tilapia raised for food we are recycling it in leather for fashion instead of snake or alligator skin.
I love the texture and expensive look of this organic medium and is my first time working with it. I have hammered it by hand in this some of cookie cutter mold.
Hope you like my new Organic earrings. In organic jewelry by Allie we are always looking and finding inspiration in organic mediums.
