B&I x TLE Vibration Hoop Earrings
- The Vibration Hoop Earrings were made to move in! Hand formed from sterling silver and brass, the interlocking shapes and stacked square charms make these 1” hoops the perfect dance partner. These earrings are inspired by inclusivity and community - the idea that individual unique shapes are made better when working together. Designed hand-in-hand by Portland jewelry favorite Betsy Cross and Tender Loving Empire as part of our 2018 Artist Collab Series. Materials: Sterling silver, brass, sterling silver posts and post backs. All pieces original and made by hand in the Betsy & Iya Portland, Oregon studio exclusively for Tender Loving Empire.
- betsy & iya started in 2008 in a coffeeshop with a notebook, a bright red pencil, and nothing to lose. Among scribbles and coffee stains, the words “jewelry making” appeared in that notebook. Betsy wrote it down, thought about it for a while, and then she made some jewelry. And it worked, so she did it some more. Now they're a handcrafted institution in Portland, OR, regularly designing and creating some of the city's most popular works.
