Perseus, legendary Greek shield earrings in brass

They are composed of brass.

The hero of Greek mythology, Perseus, inspires these earrings. Famous for his adventures as the mission to kill the Gorgon Medusa or save Princess Andromeda, it is also the origin of the Persian Empire. It is founded by his son Perses, who created one of the greatest empires in the Middle East whose art still amazes us today.
With a polished shield gave to him by Athena, Perseus manages to behead Medusa. Therefore, I imagined a special shield, inspired by motifs of ancient Persia, with a form that only the goddess Athena could imagine and order to the blacksmith of the gods, Hephaestus.
Golden as the sun, it takes the form of a compass rose with a floral central motif and spirals.

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 3.5 cm long.

The ear wires are also hand forged by myself in brass.

They are soldered on the back of the earrings.
