CUSTOM ORDER JEWELRY
These earrings are made of sterling silver (925) made by hand in my workshop.
They represent the beautifully decorated fans that Geishas used to wear while dancing. This famous fan flyer, Sensu or Ogi, was invented in Japan and exported to Europe, across China. The wings of bats inspired it.
It is very present in the Japanese culture, whether in daily use, ceremonies and rituals (such as that of tea), as a weapon ... It became a favored medium by many Japanese artists to make themselves known especially with the nobility during the samurai period.
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. 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.
They are 3cm long.
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.
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.
