I picked up these iridescent earrings in Quito, Ecuador, while working with kids over Christmas break. The Mercado Artesanal near downtown is a fun place to shop. It’s such a fascinating jumble of jewelry, leather goods, chocolate, alpaca sweaters, and hand-crafted housewares. Bargaining is a must!

The earrings are made from pieces of abalone shell. They measure about 1 5/8″ long and 3/8″ wide.
