The picture does not do justice to the stunning artisan work. Although it may look a little like crochet or tatting, this earring is actually made of hundreds of tiny knots, each made one-at-a-time with needle and fine silk thread.
This type of stitching is known as oya which has been used in scarves of Anatolian women for centuries. The picture does not do justice to the stunning artisan work.

The items are produced with strong silk fiber so they do NOT deform, loose shape or break. They can be used in ALL seasons. Ideal for special events or for everyday enchantment...
Every mm is original and handmade, no machine are involved. The item is done with an ancient lace / embroidery technique "knot stitch" from start to finish so it takes hours to complete the entire item. -as well as years of experience.
It’s very intricate technique and takes years to master. Each knot starts by taking a stitch, wrapping the front and back end of the thread around the needle so that it will create a knot when pulled taut, and then pulling the thread through to complete the stitch while controlling the tension and placement of that knot with fingers and eyes.
This item is made upon request. Please allow 4- 7 days to make it.
Put the items in a bowl filled with warm water and some liquid detergent. Shake the bowl gently a few minutes. After rinsing, lay it down to air dry. Do NOT wring the items.
It can be washed with warm water and soap in a jar. And it does NOT deform at all. The stitches are very tight and strong too so they do not break up.
