I've been craving bigger earrings. Watching shows like Daisy Jones and the Six when it first came out and Minx, I just love the Mod designs of the late 60's and early 70's. The shapes are so big, bold, fun and flirty! The styles are inspiring but I'm not a fan of the plastic materials or bright colors. So I took to my sketchbook to redesign, to get the vibe and then bring in my own style, ancient looking, hammered, muted earth tones.
It's funny because I've kind of always been inspired by ancient designs, to modernize them and bring them forward. This time it was taking more contemporary designs and putting an ancient spin on them.
These earrings feature tiny brass circles tethered above much larger brass circles via a 1" long strand of oxidized sterling silver chain.
Small Brass Circles are 1/2" diameter
Large Brass Circles are 1 7/8" diameter
1" Sterling Silver chain connecting the two.
These hang 3 3/4" from Sterling Silver earwires to the bottom of the large discs
