QUESTION: Are your tiles real antique Portuguese Azulejo tiles?
ANSWER: Absolutely not. In our description of each item, we try to call attention to the theft and destruction of antique Portuguese tiles. Even the tiles found in flea markets and antique stores were most likely stolen off a building during the night. We have seen entire home facades disappear during the night to thieves. Thankfully, Portugal just passed a law declaring this theft a crime. We can only hope that it will one day be enforced.
For this reason, we have no part in this despicable crime. We make our own tiles from polymer clay. Ceramic would be far too heavy for earrings and impossible to mold into the shapes we want. For the hoops, we mold the clay as thin as we can get it, so that it will look pretty inside the hoops.

The city of Aveiro is known as the Venice of Portugal because of its canals and lovely hand painted and colorful boats called "moliceiros".

The city dates back to the 10th century when it was known by its first Latin name of Alavarium, literally, "a gathering place or preserve of birds." The Moors invaded and then held it until the 11th century, after which it became popular with Portuguese royalty. In the winter of 1575, a terrible storm closed the entrance to its port, ending a thriving trade in metals and tiles. The same storm also created a reef barrier at the Atlantic Ocean.

These tiles are located on the facade of a very, very old building in the lovely town of Ilhavo. To my dismay, many old buildings have fallen in disrepair and this is an attempt to preserve a little of the patrimony of Portugal before it's too late.

Deep in the misty mountains lies the enchanting city of Sintra, home to ancient castles, fairy-tale palaces, and verdant gardens. For centuries, sultans, kings, and wealthy noblemen were drawn by the area’s haunting beauty, and they left a trail of opulence and grandeur behind them.

These earrings are replicas of the Frescoes on the walls of the chapel at the National Palace of Sintra! Amazing! See photo!


The earrings are almost 8cm long (about 3" by 1 1/2" wide )and lightweight. Czech Glass Beads! .3 oz or 9 grams each. THE WEIGHT = If you hold one US quarter coin (25 cents) and one penny coin (1 cent) together, that will give you a feel of the weight of each earring. There is a shorter version of these earrings here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/636333181/earrings-bohemian-tile-portugal-atrio?ref=shop_home_active_91

The term Azulejo or Tile dates back to the time of Arab occupation of the Iberian Peninsula. The term "azulejo is derived from the Arab word (al zulej) which means a smooth and polished stone. It wasn't until the 16th century that the process was perfected into the tile we know today.

Although the tiles are water resistant, care should be taken to keep the tiles and metal out of water and away from lotions, including cosmetics, sunscreen, hairspray, etc. The chemicals in these products will dull the finish on the tiles.
🌸🌸🌸
All my tiles are replicas made of polymer clay where the image actually becomes part of the clay through baking. No glue is used in the process. The pieces become waterproof and scratch resistant. Due to the handmade and hand shaped nature of each tile, slight variations will occur, as no two pieces are alike.

Elizabeth of Atrio has a wonderful design sense, which totally captures the beauty and uniqueness of the Portuguese azulejo (tiles) and aesthetic. I lived in Lisbon for several years, and Atrio jewelry brings back so many fond memories—already deciding on my next purchase! Excellent quality and design. Sending pic soon also. Ciao e multi obrigada!!

Not my first order from this shop. I just love the original designs! Shipping is always really fast. These earrings are heavier than the hoops sold at this store, but I was able to comfortably wear them all day.
