Feature a bit of traditional Palestinian art as part of your everyday wardrobe. Our culture, after all, is our resistance!
- These earrings were made to make up for all the Palestinian springs we've missed and in anticipation to the springs we will enjoy in the future. A few years ago, I came upon this beautiful quote about Palestinian poppy flowers: "Beautiful poppy flowers dominate the Palestinian landscape in the spring. Their vivid color inspires us and gives us hope. The Israeli occupiers systematically destroy our land and our trees in an attempt to uproot our hopes and squelch our dreams. Nevertheless, spring will come, and the poppies will bloom again, and so too will our dreams." Tamam Al-Akhal, 2004.
- Measures to be about .4 inch in length, .6 inch in width, and .3 inch in thickness.
- Made from a birch plywood, hand-painted with bright acrylic paint, and adhered to surgical steel posts with surgical steel butterfly backs. These are safe for sensitive ears.
- Care: though these are made and painted from 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 delicate to ensure longevity of the pieces.
