Bass clarinet wood earrings with variscite inlay
These earrings are made from grenadilla wood from a bass clarinet. They are inlaid with Kingman turquoise from Arizona. The earwires are sterling silver, as are the connectors to the pieces of bass clarinet wood. Each piece is slightly different, as the wood contains vestiges of the instrument it used to be part of (toneholes, bushing screw threads, that sort of thing).
