About The Running Monkey Sterling Pin and Earrings

Sterling silver (925) mill-rolled sheet and drawn wire were used in fabrication of the pin/ pendant and earrings.  Repousse of three half rounds in a row decorate each of the nine pendants on the pin/ pendant and five "fringe" pendants on each earrings.

The monkey subject is executed in a pre-colonial Aztec influenced style as an overlay cut out with stamped details.

There is a safety catch on the hand-made pin back.  The earrings have been hand-crafted.  Each has a sturdy screw back attachments.

As most people have pierced ears, conversion of the earrings in this set will be available at no charge.  Posts will be fitted with large sterling "comfort" clutches as well., making them easier to find when dropped !
