White Natural Antique African Porcupine Quill and Brass Bullet Casing Earrings
Some porcupines have up to 30,000 quills on their body. Porcupines can’t shoot out their quills, but they will be easily released when predators get it touch with animal. These antique quills were collected from an elderly gentleman who had they in his possession for over 60 years!
Quill tips are still sharp! Total length is approximately 3”. Brass French ear wire, Sterling Silver or Titanium.
Note: As these are handmade earrings with natural porcupine quills, the pair you receive may vary *slightly* from the image.
