A pair of Cinnabar post earrings by Ruthie Cohen of Arden, North Carolina.
Chinese Cinnabar consists of many layers of lacquer, built up, then carved or pressed into designs. It is a beautiful shade of red and is very lightweight and comfortable to wear.
This Cinnabar pendant is domed, like the bottom of an acorn; it is set in a sterling silver bezel, with a sterling silver post. Each earring is 3/4" in diameter.
Artist statement and explanation of Cinnabar included.
