CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY
These earrings are made of sterling silver (925) made by hand in my workshop.
This jewel is a custom order made under the guidance of our client. The first key element: the earrings should be for non-pierced ears. They were to be a nod to the Zapotec art of Mexico and present the initials of our client.
These earrings are named so Dainzú in reference to the Zapotec archaeological site Dainzú in the state of Oaxaca in Mexico.
They are rectangular and show meanders, often used in Zapotec art. These meanders are interrupted by a circle with a client initial.
It is the client who chose the clasp system for non-pierced ears in our catalog available online.
These earrings are really one of a kind. They are 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.
The bands are etched with meanders and the initials of the person. Polished, shiny finish.
They are 4 cm long for non-pierced ears.
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.
