Mixtec Bell Earrings



11th century, Mixtec, Mexico

Jewels found a collection of the beautiful bells, encrusted with centuries of verdigris patina.  It’s this color that is so alluring, not to mention the thought of their past lives.  We wrapped them with sterling wire and made the clip tops.  There is the expected wear and a small piece missing from one bell.

A limited Jewels design; no two exact
