Sterling Silver Frida Kahlo Filigree Peacock EarringsDesigner: Flor Gutierrez Pacheco
Traditional and dramatic, these stunning silver earrings created in filigree in the image of a peacock ("pavo real" in Spanish) make a statement. You won't find another like them toooooo! They were handmade by a talented and lovely woman I met in Oaxaca, Mexico named Flor. She brought me to her house to share how she makes all her jewelry designs. She was taught by her parents and is one of 10 children.
I also believe Frida Kahlo would have worn earrings *like* these! They are so classic to this region of Mexico, where Frida adapted her style.

- Made with .925 sterling silver (stamped), the dark color is because the silver was oxidized
