Vintage pair of Waziri earrings with long bell dangles and hair chains that can be hooked into the hair or to a headpiece. These would also make nice pendants. About 7.5 inches total length and 2 inches wide. There are hooks at the top of the hair chains. Pretty glass jewels in traditional colors. These are tribally used pieces. This type of earring usually cannot be worn in regular western piercings unless you have stretched your piercings. If you will be wearing these in piercings without the protection of tunnels, please make sure the wires are clean before wearing.
