Mexican Frida Kahlo Filigree EarringsDesigner: Eolodia from Oaxaca City
These handcrafted intricate filigree earrings are replicas of traditional earrings specific to Oaxaca and principally the Tlacolula Valley. The traditional garb of this region consists of heavily embroidered garments accessorized with large amounts of gold jewelry....often gold filigree earrings like these! Frida Kahlo, the famous Mexican painter, was my inspiration for going to Oaxaca. During her lifetime she adopted the traditional Tehuana attire as a means of showing her solidarity with the strong women of this matriarchal Zapotec society. These are brilliant in every respect.
