  • the story

Flowering Pair

The elegant flowers of the calla lily have the ability to remain in bloom year round, making them the perfect symbol of enduring beauty. These earrings translate that beauty into an even more lasting medium: handcrafted copper.

Metal artist Alexis Archibald uses recycled copper with a rich patina to form the familiar, coiled shape of the calla blossom. Inside is another copper petal that is hand enameled a dusty shade of turquoise. The blossoms are then suspended from sterling silver filled wire, for a look that is contemporary and always fresh. Handmade in San Diego, California.

      Comments about CALLA LILY EARRINGS:

      These earrings are just gorgeous. They're clearly handmade - the glaze has certain imperfections that adds to the charm. They're good size but not too big. They make my outfits feel special but aren't loud "look at me" type of jewelry. Love them.

      A couple of small knocks: one is that the way the wire is embedded in the flower means that it twists out of position often - at least once or twice a day - which means that I could be walking around with the cala lily facing behind me instead of front / slightly aside. The second is that the hooks are silver tone, which doesn't quite go with the bronze tone of the rest of the earrings.

            Comments about CALLA LILY EARRINGS:

            One earring was not aligned properly. When it was put on, it was backwards. Had to manually open the hook and reset it. The craftsman/-woman was not very detail oriented. One is also slightly bigger than the other, there is a lack of symmetry.

            Colors are however dazzling and they go great with everything.

              I have worn these earrings twice and have received compliments both times. Although they have some weight to them they are comfortable. Because they are so unique it makes them a conversation starter. I really do love them!
