Carlos Gutierrez Traditional Oaxaca 925 Filigree Amethyst/Pearl GUSANO Earrings

295.00

These very Spanish Colonial Style earrings are made in the"gusano" style of Oaxaca, Mexico and date back to the 1800s. "Gusano" means "worm", and refers to the undulating curved shape of the earring's body,.They are one of Oaxaca's traditional & main styles..Designed in a vertical form,there are 4 sections of hand sewn pearls & faceted amethyst cz's that highlight the design down the center & lay in a "Diamond Cut" circular sterling wire, that tends to give them slight sparkle when the light or sun hit them.The CZ's are set with hand made prongs.They are surrounded by oxidized sterling filigree, done in a elongated,rounded/rectangular shape.The fineness of the wire,dictates their wearability & comfort.The wire work is precise & you see every part of the circular formations that make the design,with no excess solder, that would make them a visual mess!!

 

Gusanos are given a curvature that starts at the 3rd.pearl section down from the top..A rounded square shape dangle is extended at the bottom.They have a shepherds hook that goes down about 2/3rds.of the way down the back,so it's quite long.There is a catch for the wire to keep the wire closed.
