There is a powerful tranquility in the creations of Opulent Antiquity Designs. The collection of ornate, hand carved earrings is imbued with a shamanic elegance that is dreamlike, alluring and emotional.
Flora and fauna are prevailing themes in the designs. Intricate floral blossoms and sumptuously feathered birds emanate an aura of magic and renewal. White wolves and black bears infuse a sense of wisdom and connection to nature and the spirit world. The creations of Opulent Antiquity transform the imagery of dreams into a physical reality for personal adornment.
The relationship between the organic materials and precious metals used in these pieces is consciously poetic. All materials are collected and harvested in a sustainable manner to help preserve the planet. Pieces are carved from Mother of Pearl Shell, Fossilized Mammoth Ivory, Cow Bone, Arang Wood and Assem Wood. These organic carvings are then coupled with either sterling silver or gold elements that extend the movement and spirit of the piece and allow the carvings to be worn.
Time-honored hand carving techniques illustrate the beauty of the handmade and what is possible without the use of machines. This hand carving combined with the intricacies and variances in the natural materials infuse each piece with uniqueness. A personal relationship is established with the wearer, as each piece is original to her. It is the hope of Opulent Antiquity that wearers of their designs are afforded a sense of harmony between themselves, their environment, and their spirit.
Pieces range is price from $120 to $250 and can be purchased through the opulent antiquity website: www.opulentantiquity.com
