Crimson poppy flowers earrings and brooch

Today I present new addition to my leather jewelry and accessories collection. You can find it in special section in my shop.
Crimson poppy flower earrings and Crimson poppy flower brooch are made from dark red recycled genuine leather. Actually I made also necklace but it was immediately sold)

Crimson is a strong, bright, deep red color. It is endlessly multifaceted color. Perfectly go together with gray or light beige.
Few historical facts:
Crimson was always the color of the Church.
to produce the color crimson was used Expensive kermes and later cochineal dye. Cochineal dye was used by the Aztec and Maya peoples of Central and North America and was discovered by the Spanish explorers of South America. The Cochineal insect is a small parasitic sap-loving insect that feeds primarily upon the sap of certain cacti. A great many insects must be processed to produce any useful amount of the highly prized red dye extract. In recent years it has become commercially valuable again. One reason for its popularity is that, unlike many commercial synthetic red dyes, it is not toxic or carcinogenic
