Mexican Folk Art Hearts
These sweet little repousse hearts have become a favorite of mine, a reminder of time spent in the lovely city of Oaxaca.
I start with sheet sterling silver, and using tiny little tools and a bowl of warm pitch for support, the design is formed first from the backside of the earring. It is flipped over and details are added. The earrings are cut out, oxidized and finished. Each pair is unique, made to order. You will receive the pair shown in the first 2 photos.
1 5/8", including the sterling earwire. Lightweight and easy to wear.
