Kate Hoop Earrings in Tortoise
These earrings are sourced from high quality and non-petroleum based acetate, imported from Italy. Cellulose acetate is a natural and renewable material, providing an eco-friendly alternative to petroleum-based materials.
Cellulose acetate is made by extracting cellulose fibers from cotton and wood pulp to create a transparent paste. This paste can then be colored, processed, and molded for a variety of industrial applications. Machete's jewelry is cut from a large block into thin sheets, and then cut again into smaller rectangular blocks.
- Measures 1.5" diameter
- Hypoallergenic stainless steel earring posts
- Handmade in Atlanta, Georgia and Italy
