These earrings have three style variations, each using different colours.
The title of these cube-shaped earrings illustrates how differently colors can look, depending upon the colors they are paired with. Only a handful of colors are used, and the side of each cube has different pairings of colors. For example, red stripes look very different against a blue background compared with a pink background. The cubes rotate on their hammered wire circles so the wearer can choose which colors face out. The earrings are hollow so are lightweight to wear, and are finished with a clear sealant for protection.
