We are always on Chris Nieto's list to receive these earrings on the rare occasions that he makes them. He makes very few of these because of the painstaking process of inlaying smaller pieces with the exacting precision that he requires and making these items match perfectly as a pair. The mosaic tiles are set on a foundation of serpentine and the drops swing freely.
