Absolutely! Jewelry is an art form that allows makers to express their individuality and cultural influences, and certain designs are used to represent important symbols. For example, Central American artisans incorporate traditional figures, glyphs, and pre-Hispanic folklore. In Mexico, the famous work of artists Angel Ortiz, Maria Belen Nilson, and Rosa Rojo highlight the beauty of Aztec, Mayan and Teotihuacan civilizations. In Peru, powerful symbols, like the Andean chakana, are used to represent humanitys union with the cosmos. Indian artists are extremely tied to their faith and spirituality. Earring designs include chakra gemstones, motifs of Lord Ganesha, and other spiritual imagery. In Bali, the Om symbol is prevalent, as well as the mythological panther-like Barong image, which is seen as a protector spirit. Designs pulled from the natural world, like animal figures, feathers, plants, as well as stones, are used in almost every culture, which then infuses them with their own particular meanings.
Yes! We offer a wide selection of earrings that are made from eco-friendly materials. Cow bone, water buffalo horn, fabric, recycled paper, wood, palm leaf and coconut shells, just to name a few. Product descriptions always list materials used, so be sure to read about each product to discover how artisans are working to ensure sustainability and environmental consciousness.
There is no best when it comes to handmade earrings. However, certain materials lend themselves well to jewelry. Silver and gold, for example, are frequently used to make earrings because of their luster and shine. Each region puts its own unique touch on the art of earring-making. Most use some combination of silver, gold, gemstones, wooden or glass beads, and bones. Some regions, like West Africa, have found ways to introduce up-cycling into the jewelry-making process. Recycled plastic and paper beads, as well as coconut shells are commonly integrated into beautiful works of earring art. Whatever materials used, quality and safety are always our top priorities. Each pair of earrings is tested to ensure its safety. If you do have sensitive skin, you may consider rhodium plated earrings, as rhodium is completely hypoallergenic. You can always find all relevant information about materials in the product description.

Beautifully Sculpted Sterling Silver Earrings
I was looking for sterling silver hoop earrings. These are beautifully made with a sculpting that just matches the ring & necklace I had to wear with them. I love wearing pieces of art someone has made for me to enjoy. Cathy Arlington, Tex
Love! Love! These earrings!
I fell in love with these beautiful earrings the moment I saw them. I wore them everyday. Sadly I lost one while on vacation. I have the other one. Hoping maybe I can find a match someday.

Silver hoop earrings can be luminous and smooth, or engraved with the artistic stylization of a designer's homeland. These handcrafted earrings are to be admired for their intricate details.
Styles are as varied as can be: the hoop can dangle on its own or be shaped as anything other than a circle, including a square, a dolphin or a swan. It can hold cascading gems that become waterfall or chandelier earrings, and it can highlight the colorful iridescence of a pearl balancing it with a beautiful pearl bracelet. Novica's collection of hoop earrings is designed to accessorize with style and elegance.
