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.
Featured Reviews on Natural Flower or Leaf Earrings
I own two pairs of these! I grow them too.
I liked these earrings so much and the price point was so reasonable that I bought a second pair on sale. I know that there is a real leaf encased in the plating, so if the first pair wears out I will have another one ready. I know exactly what leaf this artist chose to preserve: Dischidia ruscifolia, a vining relative of the Hoya family which is very popular among plant collectors. I do grow this plant along with many Hoyas. A hanging basket overflowing with this Dischidias vines appears as thousands of tiny green hearts, and gives rise to the common name of the thousand hearts vine. I own several pieces of jewelry from this artist and these earrings are of the same high quality construction as his other work.
I bought these as a gift for my mom, who loves jewelry and bright colors. They are wonderfully light weight and very vibrant in color. She loved that they show up nicely from a distance but are not too long. In addition, its wonderful to have a pair that is unique as these earrings are made from real petals.
Leaf Dangle earrings
I bought these for my sister for Valentine s Day and she loved them. They are so dainty and greenish- blue color. They will definitely wow any outfit. So glad I purchased them!
"For the past 20 years or so, I have had good and bad times but I enjoyed it all. It is pretty much like black coffee – bitter, sweet and very nice."
