Prism Himmeli Earrings

Although the root of the word “himmeli” is Germanic – in Swedish and German himmel means “sky” or “heaven” – and different versions of this tube or straw mobile can be found in other Nordic countries, the himmeli is considered the quintessential traditional Finnish decoration. 

Add serious wow factor to your look with these gorgeous geometric earrings. Surprisingly lightweight, they are made from woven brass tubes. Nickel-free Brass Clasp ear wires to keep them secure, gold fill ear wires are available, +$5.

The raw brass will patina over time, adding depth and beauty to the metal. To brighten it up, put a q-tip into lemon and rub the surface of the metal. For a bright polish, use a product like Brasso. 

$38
