These earring reminded me in their shape as they evolved while making them, of eyes. Specifically the stylized shape found in Egyptian artifacts. I dubbed these the yes of Isis. I resisted the urge to put a stone right in the middle so that they would look specifically like eyes as that was not really what I was intending and it seemed too obvious.
I did however feel that they needed the color that the Beautiful deep colored Amethysts bring to them and the color contrast between the high shined Sterling silver and the White Filigree made from Fine Silver. They are great earrings to dress down or up and are light a comfortable on the ear.
They measure approximately 2.25 inches in length and are made using the ancient Filigree technique whereby very thin wire is coiled and shaped and used to fill in the empty cells created by the thicker structural Sterling silver framing wire to shape the piece.
These earring are great for young and mature wearers alike, business or informal dress.
