We all know that the pileated woodpecker uses his strong beak to make big holes in trees, but do you know they have a tongue? Well, they do. A long barbed tongue that allows them to reach deep into a tree to extract wood boring beetle larvae and termites.

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.
