Ear Spools - Small
Item: EAR-01
Price: $55.00

These ear spools are similar to numerous ear spools found in the mounds.  These spools are much smaller than the ancient ones which were frequently as large as 3inches in diameter, however, the design is consistent with the ancient artifacts. 

These ear spools could be worn by someone with gauged ears or a cord could be wrapped around the groove or through the center hole and they could be worn as a pendant as well.

These ear spools are made from terracotta clay, hand burnished and incised.  The incised lines are then colored with black and white slips.   These spools were kiln fired.  They have a protective wax finish applied.

Size: 3/4 inch diameter with the groove being 1/8 inch deep.

Materials and Techniques: This pot is hand built from terracotta, hand burnished, incised, decorated with black and white slip, and kiln fired.
