The Fernanda Sibilia Large Horus Earrings - Forest are a reflection of Sibilia’s inspirational passion for Latin American art. Her travels throughout this part of the world have informed the colors and textures of each collection. Fernanda and her talented team of artisans meticulously make these pieces by hand at her design studio in the Abasto neighborhood of Buenos Aires (the birthplace of tango). Oxidized brass, patina, copper and brass. Surgical steel posts. H: 2.5" W: 2″. Patinas and oxides are meant to be kept dry. Should not be worn while bathing. Hand made in Argentina.
Fernanda is constantly researching and employing novel metalsmithing and jewelry making techniques. Like an alchemist in a lab, she manipulates bronze, copper and alpaca (a silver colored alloy) to create a rainbow of bold new colors and combinations. In 2015, Fernanda was invited to create a modern jewelry collection based on the Pre-Columbian galleries of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
