Sterling Silver Lapis Filigree Earrings
Sterling Silver Lapis Filigree Earrings are intricate, ornate, artisan crafted sterling silver earrings that our designers had created in Ankara more than 3 years ago. The first sample takes about half a day for an artist with 10 years experience to finish. The intricate structure of the earrings shows how the artist have embroidered to create the floral designs that constitute the piece. Like most filigree that we make this too is lightly polished and oxidized to bring out the luster of the silver and give it an antique look. These earrings are ornamented with genuine lapis lazuli. It is believed that lapis lazuli strengthens total awareness and creativity, improves sleep and cures insomnia.
Filigree is the art of embroidery with metal thread. It is similar to embroidering lace except with metal thread. It is an art that has been developed and excelled in Southeastern Turkey in the last two millennia by Assyrian Christians. A unique combination of traditional filigree techniques with modern sensibility is the secret of our designs.
