Story Behind the Art: Danai's collections treasure nature. 'I was born in northern Thailand. After going to college, my partner's father suggested that we create something representative of the area where we live and we came up with the idea of covering natural products, such as exotic flowers and plants with gold.'

I am returning these earrings because the color is not exact. The earrings are a bright white and violet color, but with streaks of blue running through the white. It's difficult to tell if these streaks are part of the petal's coloring, or fiber threads that fell in the glue during construction. They stand out and are distracting.
They are real petals dipped in plastic, which creates a sharp plastic edge around the petals. I expected the crafter to have filed these edges down, because now I have to do it. The earring backing is a figure-8 glued to the point of the petal. I would have preferred something prettier or neater than that.
Overall, very pretty and dainty earrings, though probably actually worth $10 or $15. I expected a little better workmanship.
