DESCRIPTION

Feature a bit of traditional Palestinian art as part of your everyday wardrobe. Our culture, after all, is part of our resistance!

  • This pair of earrings features the Arabic letters "Alif" (for the left ear) and "Kha" (for the right ear), which together from the word "Akh" (or the Arabic version of "ugh", a note of frustration, melancholy, longing, etc.). These earrings are a foil of perhaps sadness against the tongue-in-cheek humor of our Toz earrings. What is Palestinian existence except a surreal suspension between states of hilarity and distance?

DETAILS

  • Measures to be about 2 inches in length.
  • Made from a strong gold mirror acrylic; the earring hooks are made of a gold-plated metal.
  • Care: though these are made from a very strong material, the earrings should be handled with care to extend their wear and avoid scratching/general damage. When putting on or taking off the earrings, be careful to ensure longevity of the pieces.
