Alluring, exotic jade excites the mind, conjuring images of some undiscovered treasure lying deep inside the jungle, waiting to be found. Jade in a dark green color is at the heart of Guatemalan artisan Estuardo Jimenez's design for this pair of rectangular sterling silver earrings. Estuardo comments, "Since I was young I liked to work with my uncles and other artisans in the workshop, watching the way they handled jade stones and silver until they finished a piece. As a child, I was curious to learn and do as the others, ‘working’ on my own pieces. Maybe my jewelry wasn’t the prettiest, but my parents motivated me and applauded my efforts." Now an adult, Estuardo conceives of and hand-crafts the dangle earrings which feature cabochon bezel-set jade stones. A kidney earwire closure and high polish metal finish complete the modern accessories.
