These unique 1" wide earrings are crafted from Sterling wire and sheet, and cast in limited production and completed and stone set by Teresa. Designed when Teresa moved from the city to the country and became inspired by the many life forms teaming in the yard.
*Now also available in solid 14k or 18k Gold, with your choice of gemstones.
Cool Sterling is given a soft, natural charcoal patina and finished by hand-brushing to a gleaming satin-finished Silver.
Bejeweled insects, like beloved treasures found in a jewelry box, a bit nostalgic, their stylized essence classic, contemporary and fresh.
The subtle feminine form of these earrings is inspired by Bees association with women, in many different cultures, throughout history. In Greek mythology, bees were believed to be the souls of priestesses who had been in the service of Aphrodite during their lifetimes. In Ancient Greece, at the temple of Aphrodite at Eryx, priestesses were called “Melissae”, which means "Bees,” and Aphrodite herself was called Melissa, the Queen Bee.
All pieces will arrive in a pouch, packaged in a decorative gift box with T and Brie cards that convey Bee inspirations. Each work is signed and dated and hand-stamped Sterling. A perfect gift for the Nature lover or avid gardener in your life.
