Inspired by the work of french architect Jacques Couëlle, a French self-taught architect known for his work in the architecture-sculpture movement, these handmade statement earrings are designed to be sculptures for your ears. Just as Couëlle’s work was sculpted to follow the forms of nature, these earrings are hand-cut to follow the shape of the face with a striking asymmetrical balance. Made from red brass with a sterling silver post and polished to a high shine, these earrings are the perfect statement piece for any occasion.
Each earring measures approximately 3.25 inches long, and 1.75 inches at the widest point.
*These earrings are finished and ready to ship!
Each EPICENE piece is thoughtfully handmade in our studio from carefully selected stones and metals. Although durable, they are delicate by nature and should be handled and stored with care.
Because EPICENE pieces are made from natural metals which are sensitive to their environment, they may patina and change color over time. Humidity often accelerates this process, so make sure to protect your jewelry from any excess moisture. Please avoid showering, bathing and swimming in your EPICENE jewelry, as well as exposure to harsh chemicals or perfumes.
If you wish to restore your pieces to their original shine, gently rub them with a polishing cloth, silver polish or brass cleaner, taking care to avoid any stones. Visit www.epicenejewelry.com for tips on how to keep your EPICENE jewelry looking shiny.
EPICENE pieces that feature stones and natural materials are especially delicate, so please take care to avoid activities that may shock, dent, or scratch your jewelry.
Earring posts are always tested for durability before leaving the studio, however they are not designed to withstand the inside of a bag or drawer without and hard layer of protection such as a padded box or tin, so please make sure to store them properly when not in use.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions regarding the care of your EPICENE pieces.
