Hydrodipped, sealed, oceanic earrings with sterling silver french wire hooks Hydrodipping is a process where you add paint to water and dip the metal in to be coated. Each pair is one of a kind and unique. These earrings reminded me of the ocean in Puerto Rico where most of my family still lives. They are lightweight and comfortable to wear. I include rubber backs so they don't get lost if you are dancing the night away! I ways use sterling silver ear wires, to prevent irritation and these are.
