Description Materials
 
Hand made by Ruben Xolotl Viramontes. Signed and dated.
These earrings are inspired by nature, i am amazed at the beauty of the materials. The inlays are; Ebony which i collected myself from the jungles of Mexico, Mammoth ivory from Russian territory, Mother of pearl (white) from Philipines, Mother of pearl Black from Mexico, Black Coral from Mexico i brought 14 years ago from Zehuatinejo.
One earring weighs 4.5 grams solid Sterling Silver, the ear wire is #20 wire gage and can be made in other materials like white gold (extra $50) or stainless (no extra), comfy light weight. The width is a little over 1/8 of an inch. The diameter is the same as an American Penny or 3/4 of an inch across. Hand made everything, even the clasping device is secure to my specs.
Look for these on Howie guess who!
Materials will vary a little, the coral has circular grain patterns, the center is hollow and sometimes ends up at the surface of the inlay so you see a line across the middle. I choose the most grain pattern i can find on a piece to show growth rings and natural patterns. I love natures little perfect imperfections. We are soooo used to perfect slick clean manufactured things.These are hand cut gear looking and not symetrical but close and brushed finish not shiny to go better with the organic feel of these earrings. I try to show off the character of each material, the contrast to my modern almost gear like design makes a simple background, no distraction for you to see the minute grains and rings of the coral and the ivories. Only this i advise, do not take hot showers with these on, i finish the materials with linseed oil to preserve and stabalize them.
I know some of you will not like the use of ancient Ivory I will use other materials by request, Turquoise, Tiger Eye, Malachite, onxy, Quarts crystal,Purple Heart Ebony, etcccc......Substitute what you wish if i have it available. I do all the Lapidary work myself.
These earrings will be signed and dated by Ruben Xolotl Viramontes, Made in the USA, Northridge California ( earthquake country)
