Primitive Stitched Earrings - vertical
This funky little arty collection is not for everyone, but many people adore it. It seems to appeal to those who have an appreciation for ancient and ethnic jewelry. In many traditions, they combined materials in their jewelry, leather, metal, fibers, beads and stones. This mini collection of earrings was directly inspired by a trip I made years ago with a dear friend to Vietnam, specifically the hill tribe areas in the north. I have an amazing neck piece that is dyed and stitched fabric with metal elements added in. It is one of my many treasures from my travels.
These earrings are 2 1/4" inches long and are crafted in oxidized sterling. Red silk cord is stitched through holes in the metal.
