Semi-realistic Slug Earrings!

I recently stumbled upon the shop, ‘Dainty Curiosities’ on Etsy. Much to my delight, they had handmade slug earrings for sale. I’m a big fan of realistic slug and snail stuff, so I loved these instantly. Although they’re only semi-realistic, and some have a pneumostome on both sides, they’re the nicest looking pieces of gastropod jewelry I’ve ever seen. 

Even better, they’re fairly cheap. They run from $8 to $15, which is no more expensive than any other pair of earrings. So, I decided to buy the Limax maximus earrings, pictured in the first and last images.

My earrings arrived quickly and I was very pleased. The colors are nice and the size is perfect. Even though they seem a little big, they aren’t heavy at all. Overall, a great purchase and I’d buy from ‘Dainty Curiosities’ again.

If you love slugs as much as I do, you should check out their shop, which can be found here. They also have slug barrettes for sale!
