Modern, attention-grabbing design married with traditional craftsmanship, our Bold Asymmetrical Earrings are statement pieces that add an instant style update to any summer wardrobe. Inspired by the organic shapes of nature and the fluidity of water, these earrings are created using a variety of traditional Balinese jewelry-crafting techniques, including the hand-pouring of brass, high-shine hammering, and more.
Seeking a more subtle accessory? We also designed a smaller version, our Asymmetrical Earrings: delicately feminine yet crafted with the same character of craftsmanship.
To create both sets of asymmetrical earrings, and the rest of our summer jewelry collection, we had no place else in mind except Bali, Indonesia. The level of workmanship and pure artistry from Balinese jewelry craftsmen is second to none in the world. Dating back as far as the 12th century, tribes from the Majapahit kingdom settled in Bali and brought with them finely honed jewelry-making skills learned from centuries of contact with Indian and East Asian traders. These artisans produced every type of jewelry - from gold bracelets and earrings to crowns, belts, and hair combs - for royalty and civilians. Their design was often inspired by nature and mythology; their techniques primarily based upon casting (pouring molten metal, typically silver or brass), forging, hammering, filigree, and more.
