Alice’s Looking Glass Earrings
Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking glass is a fantastical land where everything is topsy-turvy. The concept that all is not what it seems is apropos not only for our time period but our new jewelry design. Here, hand blown Early 20th-Century English glass is gently held in place by the exacting tension between copper disk and Sterling Silver that also serve as the ear wires. Measurements: 2″ long x 1″ wide and light as a feather.
Calling All Angels
Symbols of strength and guardianship, angels play an important role in the great religions of Judaism, Islam and Christianity. Our new pendant is an ancient Roman coin from the Byzantine era circa 364-378 ad during the reign of Valentinian the Great. Striding forward or caught in mid flight, this angel carries a laurel wreath of victory and heads boldly into the future. On Verso is a portrait head of Valentinian I. This Roman angel is now housed in a handmade Sterling Silver setting and chain. Measurements: 1.5″ tall x 1″ wide; Chain: 20″ long.
The Gothic Eye Earrings
Inspired by the painted churches of Schulenberg, Texas, our new “all-seeing eye” earrings are photo etched copper with Sterling Silver findings and handmade ear wires. Sometimes called the “eye of providence” this symbol can be be found on the verso of the American dollar bill, in Christian symbolism, the Mexican ojo de venado and discussed in Buddhist texts and Egyptian hieroglyphs. Measurements: etched copper is just shy of 1″ square; Overall length: 2.5″ long.
