Absolutely! Jewelry is an art form that allows makers to express their individuality and cultural influences, and certain designs are used to represent important symbols. For example, Central American artisans incorporate traditional figures, glyphs, and pre-Hispanic folklore. In Mexico, the famous work of artists Angel Ortiz, Maria Belen Nilson, and Rosa Rojo highlight the beauty of Aztec, Mayan and Teotihuacan civilizations. In Peru, powerful symbols, like the Andean chakana, are used to represent humanitys union with the cosmos. Indian artists are extremely tied to their faith and spirituality. Earring designs include chakra gemstones, motifs of Lord Ganesha, and other spiritual imagery. In Bali, the Om symbol is prevalent, as well as the mythological panther-like Barong image, which is seen as a protector spirit. Designs pulled from the natural world, like animal figures, feathers, plants, as well as stones, are used in almost every culture, which then infuses them with their own particular meanings.
Yes! We offer a wide selection of earrings that are made from eco-friendly materials. Cow bone, water buffalo horn, fabric, recycled paper, wood, palm leaf and coconut shells, just to name a few. Product descriptions always list materials used, so be sure to read about each product to discover how artisans are working to ensure sustainability and environmental consciousness.
There is no best when it comes to handmade earrings. However, certain materials lend themselves well to jewelry. Silver and gold, for example, are frequently used to make earrings because of their luster and shine. Each region puts its own unique touch on the art of earring-making. Most use some combination of silver, gold, gemstones, wooden or glass beads, and bones. Some regions, like West Africa, have found ways to introduce up-cycling into the jewelry-making process. Recycled plastic and paper beads, as well as coconut shells are commonly integrated into beautiful works of earring art. Whatever materials used, quality and safety are always our top priorities. Each pair of earrings is tested to ensure its safety. If you do have sensitive skin, you may consider rhodium plated earrings, as rhodium is completely hypoallergenic. You can always find all relevant information about materials in the product description.
Featured Reviews on Black Earrings
Unique and Elegant
I wanted a pair of black gemstone earrings. The citrine gemstones add to the unique design of these beautiful earrings. I choose to wear these obsidian earrings for the protection properties that this stone offers in that they help you avoid negative and harmful energies from others. Ive never seen a design like this in any retail shops that I deal with. These have an Asian flair to them with the cross piece that runs along the top of the design. These earrings started me on my journey to add other pieces to match. I am very happy with the work of the artisan and would certainly make more purchases in the future from the same artisan.
Sparkling Midnight, earrings are very eye catching. Large enough to be noticeable, but still look fined and delicate. Looks beautiful worn alone or with Babun Deys Monochrome Bouquet necklace. The garnet has color red that stands out. Happy with purchase.
Classy casual look
Beautifully finished, well balanced. The onyx is faceted and the textured silver fronts look almost like marquisette. I wear them when I want to look dressed up even if Im wearing jeans. So glad I decided to buy these lovely earrings!
