Geckos and lizard are similar. Geckos are smaller ,and in the tropics, like in Hawaii they have lovely colors, like a bright green. Salamanders look similar but they are amphibians and not the same family as geckos or lizards.

I made these gecko earrings using my gecko stamps on Precious Metal silver clay. I cut the clay once I had stamped it to create a frame around the geckos. After kiln firing them I had 999 pure silver geckos. I burnished them with 24K Gold but left the silver frame around them. I painted them delicately with patina to get the color accents.

I love picking up garden lizards for a few minutes when I can to admire them. I was afraid of geckos when I was a child in India. They would dart out from behind the photo frames on the wall to snap up flies. I realized when I grew older that they were great scavengers of insects particularly flies and kept the population down, which made me appreciate them.

These are small earrings, perfect for lizard and gecko lovers.

Dimensions 1/2 inch X 1/2 inch.

 Sterling silver ear wires. These can be switched to comfortable sterling silver clip ons for an additional charge.
