Mezzaluna Earrings - Small Silver hoop, AND hammered light blade in 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.
Until recently I've only offered these in a combination of either a silver hoop with a brass blade, or the reverse of that for the various styles in this collection, but I figured I'd try out Silver on Silver...
