CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY
They are made of sterling silver (925) handmade in my studio.
These earrings are custom made with the date of your choice from the Mayan calendar wheel.The calendar wheel is a Maya system that combines two calendar cycles to get a more precise dating: the Tzolkin and the Haab. We get an even more detailed date than by just using the Tzolkin calendar. The Tzolkin system was enough for the Maya everyday life. So in order to be very precise, they used to use the Long Count system. You can find all the explanations on the following link:
This calendar was the main one for the Mayas. Therefore we offer you to choose an important date for you to make your custom made earrings with Maya glyphs. The date could be your birthday, you anniversary, an important event for you…
Therefore, you will have a pair of post earrings made of two different glyphs, one stud for the Tzolkin and another one for the Haab.
These post earrings are really one of a kind. It is artisan etched. The etching process takes times but the result allows appreciating the intricate and delicate patterns. The bas relief effect is really nice. The deeper part is matte and the upper part has been sanded and polished. Shiny finish.
Etching is an artisanal process which produces a unique design each time I use it. Two pieces with a same design will never be exactly the same by the hazards of the process. Each detail makes a unique piece.
They are 1 x 1.3 cm (approximately) depending on the date numbers added to the glyph.
This set is custom made. I will need 3 working days to finish your order.
As we currently dwell in Mexico, provide a period of 2 to 5 weeks to receive your order. Thank you for taking this information into account before ordering in our shop (please, read the complete conditions of shipping here).

I hope you will love this jewel as much as I enjoyed creating it.
