The Asante Earrings

$365.00Price

>>>SILVER•FAUNA<<<

The silver section of Eastern Winds, inspired by the fauna of the Savannah. You can't have an ode to Eastern Africa without showcasing the wildlife that makes the lands feel so full and rich. Excited to share with you these creatures less celebrated, but endlessly deserving! ðŸ…🌞✨

 

This design is one of my favorites from the whole collection, one of the designs made as a more geometric/textile/pattern inspired piece that crosses over the metals.

 

For these earrings I have set a central "stone" of Egyptian Goose feather, shimmering black and green, though these birds are STUNNING and have soooo many different colors of feathers on one bird. I really fell in love with them! The feather rests between two abstract stamped "diamonds", attached by two rings with hammer texture causing them to reflect light in all the best ways!  Hand fabricated sterling ear findings to insure they comfortably fit both standard piercings, as well as through tunnels on stretched ears <3

 

The earrings measure  2 1/2" tall and 1 1/8" wide.

The earring hooks are 18g wire.

They measure roughly .25oz a piece.

    A three part, mixed metal collection, five years in the making. Inspired by a month I spent in August of 2017, with my mother, in Kenya and Tanzania. A huge trip we shared in both celebration and mourning. It was life changing. I came home and drew this collection, although initially much larger... but then my life changed again. Everything was put on hold. This collection (and the handful of copper pieces I made first) all were tabled in the corner of my studio ever since. 

    Now, after all these years of working on other aspects of my life, it finally became clear I was ready to finish what I started, and to clear those cobwebs from my memory, and cast these idea back into the wind. 

     

    The copper/vulture, the brass/sun, and silver/fauna sections, now a whole collection. Set with African Vulture feathers, Egyptian Geese feathers, life casted Wildebeest teeth, and sparkling Raw Tanzanian Sunstone, all found in the wilds of the Serengeti. Images created in metal from photographs I personally took. Inspired by textiles I've decorated my studio with. I'm so thrilled to release this deeply personal, cathartic, and now, only joy filled, collection with you all! 🐅🌞✨
