Architecture For Your Ears

Faceted like cut gems, these concrete earrings are hand finished and polished for remarkably lightweight accessories with crisp, precise geometry. Inspired by the urban fabric of his native Taipei, Sean Yu's pieces draw on architectural design, executed with handmade craftsmanship and attention to detail. He encourages wearers to contribute to the earrings' organic life cycle, embracing the patina, chipped edges and hairline cracks that may develop through regular wear. Like modern architecture, their appeal will continue to grow through the juxtaposition of cool materials, minimal design, and the unique imperfections that time reveals. Handmade in Taiwan (ROC).

    Comments about CONCRETE AND STAINLESS STEEL EARRINGS:

    These earrings are so so cool, comfortable, and versatile! I have to admit, I was a little hesitant to order them, because while they looked cool in the pictures, I wasn't sure what they would look like on me. They're unique, casual, elegant, sophisticated, everyday.....any adjective you can think of, depending on what you're wearing. So far I have been wearing them as everyday earrings, but I could see wearing them to a formal event as well. The truly 3-D nature of them is what makes them unique and you can twist them around in your ears to get a different look and effect. i really love them. The only concern I have is whether they will be durable. They're a bit difficult to get on and off because the metal stud and clasp that are used seem a bit cheap, so I find myself tugging the earring from its stud. I'm worried they'll come off at some point. We'll see...that said, I've ordered 3 more pairs so I can give these out as gifts to friends as birthdays come up during the year. They're appropriate for a woman of any style.
