CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY
They are composed of 925 fine silver made by hand in my workshop and a blue magnesite teardrop.
I named these earrings Tana, which is inspired of Lake Tana, the largest lake in Ethiopia. These blue magnesite beads reminded me drops of water petrified and beyond, the potential importance of water.
Drought and famine in Ethiopia was a very important phenomenon, and commented in my childhood, and who marked me deeply. The existence of Lake Tana as a country I imagined completely arid always fascinated me.
These earrings evoke for me the drying, water that becomes sand, unusable. They are like a memory of that precious water and the concern we should have for this vital element.
They measure 3cm long.
The ear wires are also hand forged by myself in 925 fine sterling silver.
They have been polished until getting this bright aspect.
You have the possibility of changing the classical sterling silver eawires by sterling silver clips for non pierced ears.
Please check the last photo to see the clips or you can also check our page about non pierced ears.

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