The Eclipse earrings are made from sterling silver plate, cut, hammered, shaped. The handcrafting creates irregularities upon the precious metal and it is adorned with each piece with a shimmering constellation.

The alliance of silver and vermeil creates an elegant play on materials and endows each piece with an intimate and delicate shine.

The Incas invented a technique of superimposition of metals. Gold symbolised the Sun god and silver his wife, the goddess Moon. Numerous objects playing on this opposition were created for sacred rituals.

Eclipse

When the Sun plays with the Moon

The Sun has a date with the Moon, but he would rather play hide and seek. Here comes the eclipse, daylight skilfully carved.

The Eclipse collection addresses this phenomenon in a poetic fashion: in a re ned duet of silver and vermeil, a chiselled halo circles a nely hammered Moon.
