I was too excited to get these owls in the mail. I decided to make them into charm hoop earrings, the only downside is that I did not bend the hoops as well as I should have. The round brown beads are howlite beads. The diamond beads are made from brown plastic with a soft glossy finish. The owls are made from tibetan silver. These earrings are 2 1/2 inches ( 6.35 cm) long and 2 inches (5.08 cm) wide. These are great for the woodland, boho, and hipster crowd. Throw on your favorite mustache t-shirt and you are good to go!
