Lenten Rose Earrings

Lenten Rose Earrings


Helleborus orientalis, known as the lenten rose, is a perennial flowering plant in the buttercup family, and is native to Greece and Turkey. 

These earrings are lovingly created entirely by hand using an ancient sculpting technique called chasing and repousse. This 5000 year old technique uses small, specialized tools and a hammer to push and form the metal, either from the front of the piece or from behind. This is a time-intensive, meditative technique which produces a beautiful, unique result.

These sterling silver earrings are 1-1/4 inches long and hang on handmade sterling silver earwires.
