CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY
They are composed of brass.
These earrings are inspired by the Maya civilization of Central America, particularly Mexico.
I took a glyph of this pre-Columbian civilization to make these earrings that follow the contour of the drawing. It is a symbol of Maya writing that represents the sun and stars.
These pre-Hispanic cultures, especially the Maya are known for their knowledge of the sky and its stars. This knowledge enabled a sophisticated calendar that governed the daily and religious life.
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 deep 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 pairs with a same design will never be exactly the same by the hazards of the process. Each detail makes a unique piece.
They measure 4.5 cm long.
The ear wires are also made of brass.
