Long whimsical ceramic Maize earrings with dangling colorful stones and beads. Handmade Andean corn from Peru with long tail like strands of hemp cord each one knotted with and a different bead attached. The ceramic beads hang from sterling silver ear hooks that I hand formed and gave a little spiral detailing. A silver plate bead sits on top and champagne colored tiny glass beads accent the different stones that I chose to complement the vibrant green color of the maize : green opal, aqua marine, Jasper and shell.

I brought these little ceramic maize figures back from my trip to the Sacred Valley just outside of Cusco high in the mountains of Peru. There in the renown artisan market of Pisaq these cute ceramic beads caught may attention though I became quickly distracted when I thought I was seeing things at the stand next to me. An adorable little kitten fast a sleep cuddling a furry llama souvenir in it's paws a top colorful knitted caps which you can see above in the last photo. All part of the wonderful experience of bringing back these little treasures from the Andes.
