These lightweight earrings are made with brass earring posts and real botanicals. The Queen Anne's Lace is sourced from a small business in New Hampshire, while the other botanicals are real and sourced from my home in New England or other small businesses around the U.S.
This pair is also made with howlite crystal beads. Howlite is associated with calm and patience, and I often wear it to soothe the nerves and take the edge off stressful situations. Howlite brings a contemplative mindfulness to situations, not necessarily removing stressful feelings but momentarily silencing them. It is also known for facilitating healthy communication and can be used to calm feelings of rudeness and anger.
