Earring

425-400 BC

Greek

This form of earring is a simplification of the type popular on Rhodes in the later seventh century BC. A somewhat similar earring, in silver and possibly later, is in Athens. There the rosette has been replaced by a disc decorated in relief with the head of Athena.

This little guy has become my “mascot” I love the idea of a thing that is known for its ability to hide and blend in become the most showy and obnoxiously bright thing in a room. He is gilded in 23k gold, which took forever given that he has so many nooks and crannies. No spray paint shortcuts here! As you might be aware, it is just really really hard to photograph the luster and glow of gold, but you can use your imagination I am sure.
