Story Behind the Art: 'Earrings, rings, necklaces, and bracelets; I design all these products myself,' says Thailand's Wadarat Supasirisuk. 'Sometimes I adapt patterns I see in magazines and catalogues, sometimes simply through asking clients and professionals about current trends. However, most of the time my clients already have in mind what it is they want and just ask me to actually make it.'
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill will create variations in color, size and design. Color differences may occur between the actual product and your computer screen. If buying two of the same item, slight differences will occur from piece to piece.

I love how these earrings LOOK. Quality is excellent and they hang at a slant to my face so that the full beauty of the design and workmanship is visible. I would have given them 5 stars except they are hard to get on and off because of the tight curl at the end of the wire, which secures them. I have to turn this part of earring upside down to get the wires threaded through my ear holes. The more I wear them, the easier it gets tho. And in spite of the inconvenience, I wear them a lot because they are so beautiful and go with so much. To straighten the curl would make them less secure, and I'd hate to lose these.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
These earrings are made well, are nice and chunky, and are weighty enough without feeling heavy. Really, they are just right. In person, the design is very nice. They are larger than I expected, in a good way. The bottom rounded/fan-like part of each is exactly the size of a nickel in diameter, and then the hooks, which are sturdy, raise up a bit higher. So there is a nice swing to them.
I've read that some find them hard to put on. I find getting them on is not difficult, I just turn the hook upside down and sort of twist-slide it in my ear then turn it back & hook, which is also easy. This may not be so if one has a physical issue with their fingers, otherwise it's easy. They stay hooked well also.
♥They are one of my very favorite pair of earrings now!
I absolutely love these earrings! They are the perfect size, and they lay flat enough that I can even sleep in them. Great quality, and I am very happy to note that they have sterling silver ear posts. I am allergic to metal, but sterling silver does not bother my ears. A lot of earrings that are SS just have ss main parts and the actual pieces that go into your ears are just steel or some other kind of metal. These are sterling all the way around and I am very pleased. I get lots of compliments too!
I am so pleased with these earrings. They are just as I'd hoped. After reading some reviews, i was concerned they might be smaller than they are. However, I am very happy with their size. Noticeable, but not overpowering! With the thin branch in the photo, i feel the earrings are accurately portrayed! I really do like them!
As others have reviewed, getting them on is a little awkward, but once i figured it out, all was well.
These earrings are unusual and pretty. The only this is, where the wire connects to the earring to hold it on, it is difficult to get the little hook at the end of the connecting wire into the hole to secure the earring. The wires are very bendable so one has to be very careful not to bed the wire out of shape. I've learned to be very careful when putting them on as I already bent one of the connecting wires and had to bend it back into shape in order for it to be securely connected. If you don't mind being a little careful when putting these earrings on, they're definitely pretty and unique.
