These gorgeous earrings were handmade by talented silversmiths in Bali. They feature a sterling silver Tree of Life design on a layer of abalone shell, creating a stunning effect. Depending on the light, the background color changes as the abalone shines through.
Measure 3/4" long and 1/2" wide at the widest point (not including ear wire).
Please note: The model photo shows the same earrings in the mother of pearl version.
This jewelry was designed and handcrafted by a close-knit group of artisans who live and work together on a family compound in Bali. Bali silversmiths are renowned for a traditional and unique filigree style; these artisans pride themselves on honoring their culture while incorporating an innovative and modern touch with each piece they create. The intricate filigree styles are handmade by the women in the group. As one of the men in the community stated with a laugh: "the men don't have the patience."
