Description

This single enamel blue heart earring is part of a series of single stud earrings. You can wear just one or match your own pair. Made of 18K gold wire with golden spikes, on textured silver filled with blue enamel.

The oldest form of jewelry is said to be the amulet. Our earliest ancestors ascribed meaning — and magic — to feathers, bones, stones and even tree bark. They wore or carried these “amulets” for protection or to enhance their strength, courage or sexual attraction. Over time, these were replaced with symbolic objects: small replicas of animals, plants and, later, gods. And many more symbols have to come to life since. I see this series as a kind of modern day amulet.

Because this is a handmade item, details may vary slightly. The process creates variations in texture, form and color that are unique to each item, therefore becoming a part of the personal story of your piece.
