The Product: Greek, gold-bar drop earrings
A pair of handmade, Greek, gold-bar drop earrings in gold-plated silver from the ‘Be Strong’ collection by Athens-based jewellery studio Bijoux Bizarres. Designs from this particular, heritage-inspired collection symbolise strength and courage. They also represent the need to nurture and provide love and support for the underprivileged and unlucky in society.
Bijoux Bizarres design and hand-make ‘mythical jewellery for real people’. They draw inspiration from Greek mythology, history and traditions by re-imagining heritage patterns as modern forms. Each modular motif in the collection is representative of an entire period or cultural movement within the history of the Mediterranean region. The quirkily named collections derive from mythical Greek personas, stories or ornaments associated with them or states of mind and emotions inspired by them. Extraordinary heroines from Greek mythology whose attributes are often associated with the Mediterranean soul. Love, strength, greatness, pride and, on occasion, contradiction, vanity and drama!
The hand-crafted pieces in this collection are created in limited numbers from an individual model that has been hand-hammered, using the ancient technique of repousée-on-pitch, to make it ‘perfectly imperfect.’ Hence, each subsequent casting is subtly unique.
These earrings take you effortlessly from daytime to evening. Classical heritage designs create an enduring appeal that transcends fashions and trends. We’d team these earrings with a dark-hued, boat neck dress or top, with hair swept back. This would frame the face and draw attention to the earrings’ movement and their simple, elegant form. Try Cos for pared-back clothing with simple lines. View our other designs from the Bijoux Bizarres collection here.
