*DESCRIPTION*Our zigzag series silver earrings were inspired by the swaying trees of a bamboo forest. The undulating pattern of these earrings was studied through a series of origami paper models. These earrings can be both dressy, and casual, and perfect for the woman who wants a bit of edginess in her wardrobe! Our earrings are handcrafted in sterling silver (nickel free) with the highest quality of materials and with exceptional care. We are very proud of the quality and craftsmanship of all of our jewelry.*CONCEPT*“walk through the bamboo forest”The zigzag series was conceived while walking through a bamboo forest in Kyoto. The gentle breeze created a rhythm of swaying and crisscrossing trees. This experience was explored through paper origami which gave rise to the undulating pattern of our zigzag series.*FINISH*We offer 2 different finishes, mirror, & matte with a rhodium plating to prevent tarnishing. We are also open to custom orders if you prefer a different metal.*CARE*We recommend washing our products in warm water with a mild detergent after use. Upon washing dry immediately. This will aid in minimizing any tarnish that occurs naturally in .925 silver. To polish we recommend applying a quality brand silver polish to a soft cloth, and rubbing the piece gently but firmly. Upon polishing, rinse well in warm water, dry thoroughly and buff with a soft cloth. Store in a dry location and in contact with nonabrasive materials.
