These round mud cloth print batik earrings were hand carved, polished and then batiked with a unique design. It is a tedious process to make batik jewelry. First the cow bone is cut to the desired shape and size. Then the print is drawn and wax is applied to the parts that are not to get the dye. It is then dipped in the dye and, when dry, the wax is removed to reveal a unique batik print like the one on these earrings. Each piece is unique, no two look exactly alike.
These batik print earrings were handmade in Kenya. There are two to choose from. One is flat and has a mud cloth print, the other is more rounded and has a polka dot print.
