I love the art and architecture, color, fashion, and spirituality of India (sans caste system). Mela, as it turns out, means fair or fete (as in outside gathering to sell homemade goods) in Hindi ‘मेला – appropriate to my current venture – offering jewelry and art sold by artist. It also means “apple” in Italian and “technic” in Ethiopian, but I digress. The upside-down teardrop shape of these textured, stacked shape, stud earrings evoke thoughts of Indian motifs seen in jewelry to architecture. The stamped textures were inspired by the wonderful hand-carved wood block stamps from India used in textile surface design. This would be “alternative Indian style,” since the small earrings are made of Fine Silver, and not the gold seemingly preferred in Indian photos and fashion spreads. This style can be dressed up or down according to mood and situation.
This listing is for a single pair of “Dreaming of India” stud earrings.
They’re handmade and one of a kind, after all.
