Tea in the Sahara Rooibos Twizzle Earrings

English Norman

A happy studio accident a few years ago led to the creation of these uniquely organic shapes formed when upcycling all the delightful bits of metal on the studio bench. I think they resemble a teacup. Or a nest. To add a touch of color, each earring has a spot of pigmented resin "tea" inside. Each earring pair is original and once it's gone, it's gone! Rooibos is a red tea from South Africa. These are not quite red, not quite pink, but the illusion with red tea was too fitting to pass up.


Each piece in this collection is a delightful combination of semiprecious stones and “twizzles” of silver. What’s a twizzle? It’s a fantastic, funky shape that is created when silver is forged, formed, hammered, smithed, and soldered with great imagination to create a unique work of art.

The textured Argentium silver base measures 1/2" wide and hangs about 1" from the top of the handcrafted earwire.

Each piece is designed and handcrafted in our Atlanta studio. All designs are copyrighted by ESN Artisan Jewelry, 1997-2018.
