babette queen of arts earring
Looking for something a bit different, the dean of a New England art school had an idea — what if we inverted one earring so the pair are one up, one down? Done. And amazing. The appropriately named liz-it-is queen-of-arts earring quickly became a best seller and added additional energy to a collection created to support medical services and assistance. This version is the more petite babette queen-of-arts earring.
Deeply brushed sterling silver pillows (9mm square) with twisted rings are offset by luminous freshwater pearls and elegantly set on polished sterling silver French lever backs that securely click closed. Accent beads and rings are 14k gold vermeil. Earring pairs are set as opposites, also available with both earrings set up or down. Twisted rings move freely. Lightweight and beautifully handcrafted in New England.
As with all sterling silver, store in plastic between wearings to hinder tarnishing. If cleaning is necessary, use a jewelry polishing cloth made for sterling silver — be careful not to touch the pearls. Earrings are from Naomi's Elisabeth Collection.
