Bird in Hand Earrings
The Bird in Hand Earrings are a modern interpretation of a classic intaglio earring. They feature handmade Bird Clay Cameos on Bronze hands and gold filled posts; 5.1 cm tall by 2 cm wide.
Inspired by a relic from the Egyptian collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the bird image was first carved in wax and then used to create an impression in the clay resembling Italian intaglio engravings. One earring has a raised impression and the other is concave. Each is hung from a cast bronze hand; one facing forward and the other backward.
About the designer:
"As a designer, I am interested in taking non-precious materials and elevating the perception of their worth. Formed into classical shapes, the finished pieces are one of a kind and have a new level of sophistication when combined with bronze and semi-precious stones."
Limited Edition. Handcrafted in the USA.
