Size: appr 3,2cm x 2cm


DESCRIPTION

The earrings MTO have been inspired by my trip to Tanzania and in particular from the African practice of scarification of the Masai Tribes. Symbol of wisdom, beauty or fertility, scars are applied all over the body in shape of circles or lines.

Such marks have been translated for this series into graphic elements with a powerful meaning.

These earrings are made of a very thin sheet of metal, ingraved with small lines on opposite directions. They are very light and comfortable on the ear. The finish is slighly polished to give light to the border of the piece and the texture.
