Devil's Tower resides in Wyoming looming daunting to the visual eye. But the longer one stares, the more beauty one sees. There is a perfection in the vertical lines, in the daunting height. These earrings have a visual perfection from the get go without the looming fear that Devil's Tower can elicit. I have matched physics with design - optimal dangle movement of each bead. They look really cool when they cascade down like a stairway. Matte mildly metalicized square Onyx beads, 4x2 square, sterling silver components. Hangs approx 1 3/4" from ear piercing.
