Faceted black onyx invites meditation, while ornate motifs in sterling silver are inspired by Buddha's tightly curled hair. These lovely earrings spring from the creativity and talent of Zayd Makarim. "Mata hati is the eye of the soul, the human being's sixth or seventh or hundredth sense," he explains. "I created a series based upon this concept, a kind of jewelry that looks through your soul, that shows how deep the human soul can be."
.925 Sterling silver
