Description

Very dramatic, boat shaped, hoop earrings in sterling silver. I've sculpted them with a leaf and vine detail, and applied an antique finish to highlight the detail. They are 1 3/4" (4.45cm) in length, and have an 1 1/2" drop (3.81cm).

The inspiration for these earrings lies in the glorious headdress of Queen/Lady/Priestess Puabi (her status is in dispute) found in the archaeological dig at Ur, and currently residing at the University Museum in Philadelphia. I visited the museum years ago, and was stopped in my tracks: the headress is a wonder of lapis, carnelian and an abundance of hammered, high karat gold, dated from 2600-2500 BCE, yet is completely timeless.

Part of the headdress is a pair of large, spiraling boat-shaped hoop earrings. I was so inspired by them that I decided to make my own interpretation. They have turned out to be one of my all time favorite pieces that I've ever made.

Given their scale, I wouldn't call these earrings heavy, but for those with very sensitive earlobes, they may be too much. I qualify them as medium-weight.
