An Eye for the Storm
Polish-born jeweler Ashka Dymel lets her background in geometry, modular design, and architecture inform the aesthetic of her uniquely painterly jewelry. In all of her elegant pieces, translucent, semi-precious gems are arranged carefully like still pools of paint on an artist's palette. Like a proper painting, she frames each tender artwork in swirled, coiled, or boxed strips of sterling silver, giving each piece structure and a refined appearance.
These handmade, mini spiral earrings nestle droplets of topaz, iolite, kyanite, tanzanite, and amethyst in a darkening coils of sterling silver. The graceful yet stormy beauty of these rainy pieces brings a pop of indigo to the formal ensemble or can add polish to your favorite jeans-and-tee. Handmade in Brooklyn, New York.
Pair this piece with the matching Spiral Pendant.
