Corn tassels from the Wallace Farm Historic Corn Plot have been imprinted into silver to create these unique earrings. Specifically, the tassels are from a hybrid variety that was first commercialized by the Pioneer Hi-Bred Corn Company in 1936. The earrings are fine silver (.999) and hang from sterling silver (.925) earwires. The item pictured is one example – as with all handmade and botanical items, variations will occur. Approximately 3/8 inch round. The earrings come in a small kraft paper box with a description – perfect for gift giving.
