Brass + Gold Fill Thera Earrings
- Thera is a Greek island wherein an ancient volcano explosion formed the land’s crescent shape and circular lagoon. The Thera earrings handmade by Lauren Greenwalt of Loop Jewelry based in Portland are a serene nod to this geography while maintaining a modern simplicity you won’t want to take off. Materials: Soldered brass on 14k gold fill ear wires, approximately 3” in length.
Lauren Greenwalt native to Colorado but a Portlander at heart, has had a life-long love affair with color and texture. An imaginative, artistic child born into an artistic family, painting and drawing were always second nature to her. However, she realized one day that a three dimensional medium was a better fit for her creative urges. Jewelry design comes naturally as the perfect medium, in that it allows her to combine a love of classic elegance with playful, quirky symmetry. Inspiration for Loop Jewelry stem strongly from the geometric motifs of the Art Deco era and the sensuous fluidity of Art Nouveau creations.
