Wonderful, handcrafted all American made Ethiopian 25 Cent "Lion head" Copper and Nickel Cutaway Design Coin Earrings, are created from Ethiopian 25 Cent Coins that are a little bit larger than a U.S. Nickel. These coins are in almost new uncirculated condition. Initially, a small hole is drilled in the coin, then a very fine jewelers saw blade is inserted through the hole and worked around the coins design cutting away the background, this is accomplished by hand. Leaving the coins figure floating inside it’s outer edge (rim). The figure is then selectively layered with Brilliant Gold & Silver, the Gold and Silver work is completed by hand. Each pair, of which is a work of art comes complete with Sterling Silver wires and in a nice jewelry box.
