Gorgeous, handmade silver arracada earrings from central Mexico. These are relatively light weight and the designs are from the Mazahua region outside of Mexico City. The arracada shape is a traditional Mexican earring crescent shape. The design is a typical floral with lovebirds center with scalloped filagree edges. These are handmade with lots of love! The clasp has a tiny little point that takes some practice to insert through the ear but once you have it, it's easy.
Arracada earrings do not sit perpendicular to the head. They sit at a slight angle and sometimes you can see the back of the earring as you face a mirror. They are supposed to be that way!
