CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY
They are made of sterling silver (925) made by hand in my workshop.
Two onyx cabochons are set on sterling silver hammered semi circles. Two sterling silver balls are soldered on the side of the stone.
The bezel has been opened in the shape of a triangle.
The back of the earrings have been rustically sanded to give a modern effect.
Small sterling silver beads decorate the top of the ear wires.
These half-moon shaped earrings evoke Nordic style axes, hence their name Oks which means ax in Norwegian.
These northerners have a special bond with the ax, which is as much an everyday tool, that formidable weapon. It even appears on the coat of arms of Norway, accompanying the lion. It would be the Saint Olav battle-ax that holds the lion in his paws.
These earrings have the strong character of these northern populations of these Viking conquerors of the oceans and many territories. Adventures, struggles against the sea, battles, wars, honor, are reflected in the form of this jewel and the deep black of the onyx.
They have a very modern style and design and are definitely timeless.
They measure 3.5 x 1.5 cm long.
The ear wires are also hand forged by myself in sterling silver and soldered on the back.
They have been polished. Shiny finish.
