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 are an iteration of my tiny "Lotus" earrings where we've used the pattern of holes to evenly and symmetrically suspend
Tiny Lotus are 7/8" diameter.
Thin Oxided Silver chains begin at 1 3/4" for the outside pairs and grow longer in pairs as the reach the center 2 1/4" chain.
These hang 3 3/4" from Sterling Silver earwires to the bottoms
