Have you ever wondered how the nuthatch can scale a tree upside down? The nuthatch's foot has one big toe (hallux) that faces backward, while its other three toes face forward. It's able to walk head first down tree trunks by moving only one foot at a time while the hallux toe on the other foot holds firmly to the bark.

These earrings are designed by our artisan partners on Isla Solentiname, Nicaragua. They are hand-carved and hand-painted out of lightweight sustainable balsa wood. Each pair of earrings is carefully carved with a paring knife and then delicately hand-painted with amazing detail. Material: Sustainably harvested balsa wood and non-toxic acrylic paint. Approximate size: .75" to 1”. Fair trade.
