Artemisia Pearl Earrings
A pair of hand-lacquered faux-pearl earrings with a golden teardrop. Lovingly hand-made in Italy.
This glitzy pair of earrings is dedicated to none other than Artemisia Gentileschi, one of the most celebrated Italian artists.
She was born in Rome, the only daughter of the painter Orazio Gentileschi, with whom she trained. As a young woman she was molested by a fellow artist and the persecution of her perpetrator turned into a highly publicised court case. This personal tragedy for many years overshadowed her artistic achievements. However overcoming this hardship, her depiction of strong and resilient women became one of her pictorial specialities. Transcending the restrictions enforced on women of her time, she became one of Europe's most sought-after painters working for the highest echelons of society. Until today, she is considered as one of the great artistic trailblazers of her generation.

The wiring, clasps and studs may tarnish naturally over time - cleaning your jewellery with a lint-free cloth & storing it in a dark spot can avoid this. Avoid contact with perfumes, sprays, cosmetics, creams, humidity and extreme temperatures, as it might damage the resin and metal parts. When travelling with your jewellery, it's a good idea to store it in a rigid box to avoid external pressures from damaging your statement pieces. All of our jewellery comes with a branded pouch and presentation box to help you take the best care of your jewellery.
