Mezzaluna Earrings - small brass hoop, thick hammered silver
The Mezzaluna Collection
I keep seeing this shape, this circle and swoop everywhere. It’s a shape many of us are seeing (one friend sketched it for a woven purse and another had a similar design sideways on some pottery), what does it mean?? It’s similar to many designs I’ve always made, circles and crescents but there’s a FIERCENESS too it. These designs are still soft and round but sharp, they have more EDGE. They’re a little more dangerous, even weapon like.... They reminded me of a knife that looks like this. I searched online for “rocking herb knife” and came to find out that they’re called Mezzaluna knives. The word is Italian for Crescent Moon. Ahhh.
These Mezzaluna Earrings are made with a small brass hoop and a thick hammered silver blade that hang from sterling silver earwires.
