Handmade of coin silver, the large hook is attached to a central bead that is decorated at the join point. From the bottom of the bead silver wire is coiled around the bead and drops down for 1.5 inches to make a cone shape. The very tip of one earring the coiling had come loose but has since then had a native repair to secure it
