Relica is a cover-all term used around Lemparthia to describe small objects and trinkets said to be objects belonged to the fallen gods. Shards of armor, buttons, charms and strips of cloth have all been attributed to the beings known as 'Star Soldiers' - warriors who were condemned to live among the mortals after attempting to destroy them. The relica are said to bring luck, protection and courage to those who own them.
Sweet little artisan earrings - plates of patina-affected metal from Missficklemedia, paired with a stack of vintage artisan made clay beads of organic shapes in pale yellow and sage.
Hung on oxidised sterling silver hooks, these rustic sweeties are approximately 2 inches long from the top of the beads to the bottom of the metal plate. (loop and hook adds another inch.)
All my work is made from recycled, reclaimed, vintage, antique and salvaged material- as little as possible is new. I use new wire and findings (for hygiene purposes) and the occasional new bought crystal, which I try to source responsibly. Every piece is one of a kind.
