Description

Description

Our basket earrings were inspired by a sixth-century example from northern France, so named because of their pendants shaped as openwork hemispheres. Gold objects decorated with pierced-work patterns were one of the most popular forms of jewelry in the Late Roman/Byzantine empire. The decoration of such objects, called opus interrasile in Latin, ranged from simple patterns to elegantly complex motifs.
