Kelly Egyptian inspired, tiered, earrings: natural Turquoise, Pyrite, Jade, Smokey Quartz, Fresh Water Pearls & Sterling Silver or 14K Gold.
Imported, raw African blue Turquoise beads matched with Pyrite button beads and accented with shimmering Fresh Water Pearls, sterling silver Nepalese Flower end caps and round beads mounted from pure sterling silver components and chain. Adorned with an inner tassel of diamond cut, precious Jade gems and faceted Smokey Quartz cut gem drops. The ear wires are a subtly, shaped arrow-head design and are premium, tension-back, closures to secure them in place.
The stones make a singular partnership, chosen for their shape and balance. Each gem is raw, natural, hand-cut and polished minimally to keep the integrity of the minerals. The merging of these fine details produce a distinctive set.
Measurements (approximately from hook):
1 1/4" smokey quartz & jade gems 'tassel'
2 1/2" hook to turquoise & pyrite center
1 1/2" across bottom triangle length of pearls, silver beads, turquoise & pyrite
These earrings are carefully crafted with large, ornamental, incongruent-shaped pieces juxtaposed against the small, geometric color-filled ones. The combination creates a beautiful balance as it moves naturally on your wrist. It beams with incredibly vibrant gems! Some stones: shiny and polished, and others classic, weathered and rutty from time. All of these beauties, bathed in rich jeweled tones colored naturally from the earth.
Every design is accompanied by a list. The list encompasses history, as well as scientific details, and the meta-physical healing qualities inherent to the metals, gems & beads on your piece. All accessory and jewelry items are shipped securely inside BINC bodyBAUBLES signature, keepsake storage satchel. The petite bag is made of inimitable, repurposed materials. The packaging doubles as thoughtful and unique gift-wrapping!
Inspiration for this and much of my work is generated from an ethnological appreciation of different cultures. My design esthetic is influenced by primitive tribal jewelry and artifacts' as tiles, pottery, textiles, garments, and the colors and hues within all of them. I relish the ornate details within ancient weaponry and armor and am fortified by history of all genres. I find foods and herbs from different lifestyles throughout the world endlessly stimulating. I'm encouraged everyday by family, music, architecture, nature, and the ecosystems within.
One of my favorite things to do is to go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in the NYC with my amazing seven-year-old son. He now has a love and fondness for the museum experience that is growing close to his mommy's.
