About: 

Earrings (from the MASAI COLLECTION)

"The three pieces presented are part of the series “Masai”, inspired by the tribal practice of scarification through which the Masai tribes in Tanzania communicate and express strength, courage, bravery, fertility, or affiliation.

This form of body art has been reinterpreted in this jewelry series as graphic marks in the metal, which carries a strong hidden meaning that every owner can translate into his own personal one. The scratches are applied heterogeneously, leaving the silver skin at the back of the piece rough and dynamic. In contrast, a thin layer of „cathedral style“ enamel covers to the top, refining the jewelry and recalling the colorful tradition of African art."
