Abalone and Sterling Silver Drop EarringsDesigner: Artist in Peru
Walking the streets of Cusco,Peru I stumbled into a little silver market off the Plaza de Armas. I was enchanted by the rows of silver jewelry all encased in glass that lined the four walls. Some of the work was quite detailed, others, like these wonderful .950 silver and abalone earrings, were elegant in their simplicity. Peru, being the second largest producer of silver in the world, is known for their silver smith work so coming home without some for the shop would have been akin to going to Paris and not seeing the Eiffel Tower...I just couldn't let it happen!
Enjoy these versatile earrings that are certain to become one of your favorites in your accessory collection.
