Small Tortilla stud earrings in 9ct yellow gold. Inspired by hand made tortillas of the Yucatan. From the Journey to Mexico.
The earrings measure approximately 14mm in diameter.
In Mexico, tortillas are made everyday. Round like the sun, their surfaces like a lunar landscape, golden and with occaisonal crisp craters. And so it was that I discovered that no meal is complete without them. Tortillas were as important as anything in Mexico.
When I design, I always try to get the heart of a country and if I can, I translate it into a jewel. My tortilla design is Mexico's heart in a golden celebration of double or triple cascading earrings and a long necklace with tortillas tumbling, one after another.
