      Comments about Maya Beaded Earrings:

      The earrings are absolutely beautiful. Wore them to work with a lt. green outfit and everyone noticed the jewelry immediately. I love the earrings design and colors; matches most outfits in my closet. My only compliant is that they are a little long and the tip bends slightly. I constantly straighten them.

        Guatemala is home to more than 20 distinct Maya ethnic groups, including the Tz‘utujil, who live in the highlands. In the early 20th century, Tz‘utujil artists began painting bird’s-eye views of markets and festivals in a brightly colored folk art style. The glass beads in these earrings are typical colors in Tz‘utujil painting and in women’s embroidered traditional dress.

        The Jauhari Bazaar comes alive at sunset. Located in the center of Jaipur—the pink city of Rajastan—jewelers, gem dealers, and chai hawkers fill the narrow marketplace to capacity. Faceted gems compete for attention alongside piles of glass beads. The riot of color and noise is overwhelming and exhilarating. In the shadows and alleyways surrounding markets like Jauhari, small-scale artisans create jewelry by hand. Made in one of these easy-to-miss workshops, these feather-light, gold-plated earrings feature a delicate fleur-de-lis pattern above a single teardrop glass bead.

        Amber has a long history in Pomerania, the parts of present-day Germany and Poland that border the Baltic Sea. It can still be found along beaches there, or be scooped out of the ocean as it floats along the waves. Pomeranian brides were often given amber beads as wedding gifts, because they were believed to be protective amulets. These hoop earrings feature authentic amber beads in alternating shades of honey and citrine, paired with sterling silver spacers. Because natural amber is so lightweight, they’re perfect for sensitive ears.

        In 1876 the Maharaja Jam Singh painted the city of Jaipur pink—the color of hospitality—in honor of the Prince of Wales’ first visit to Rajastan. The legacy of his gracious gesture lives on in Jaipur, which is known throughout India as the Pink City. For centuries before the prince's visit, Jaipur had been known as a jewelry capital, where artisans and merchants sold stones and worked metal. Many things have changed in India since the days of colonial rule, but Jaipur’s jewelry tradition remains strong. Handmade in one of the city's countless small jewelry shops, these beautiful earrings pair a traditional metal filigree motif with a faceted glass bead.

        Charleston, South Carolina, is a veritable outdoor ironwork museum, with its pedestrian-friendly streets and a tradition of cast-iron and wrought-iron gates, fences, and balconies that date back to the early 18th century. British styles were the earliest to take hold in the city, but a local style soon evolved and gained national attention, with elements that were influenced by German ironworkers and the neoclassical design that was popular in architecture of the 19th century.

        Less than half a mile separates Europe from Asia at the narrowest point of Turkey’s Bosphorus strait. The Golden Horn is the name of an approximately 4-mile-long inlet whose harbor has sheltered boats for thousands of years, through four powerful empires. Its picturesque views have inspired painters, poets, and photographers—Leonardo da Vinci even designed a bridge for it in 1502.
