This gifted jeweler brings a colorful, lyrical style to her art. She devotes most of her time to family and community, so her output is extremely limited. We are, therefore, delighted to get a new piece – especially as slinky and lovely as these hoops.
Sterling silver is formed into a gracefully oval teardrop of gleaming silver. The silver is boxed, and the front is inlayed in a sleek row of natural spiny oyster shell, in a lovely array of varied hues, ranging from orange to red. Silky to the touch, the meticulous inlay work seems to glow with the sun-kissed warmth of the coral colored pieces of shell.
These beautifully tapered shapes are more interesting that circular hoops; elegant, and kind of sexy – in a ladylike way. Unusual in form, understated but luscious in color, expertly hand-fabricated, and intriguingly noticeable, these hoops are for those who know how to make a sophisticated statement – even when wearing a tee or pullover.
PS There is also a pair of turquoise hoops – same style, same jeweler, on our website.
