Miao Spiral Earrings Brass
The Miao are an indigenous group of people in southern China where silver jewelry is an integral part of their cultural identity. Miao women wear elaborate silver pieces because they regard silver as a talisman against evil spirits.
These earrings are a modern interpretation of original Miao earrings found in an antique shop. Handmade in brass by Dekwar, a skilled metalsmith in Bali.
