Betsy & Iya x TLE Dali Hoop Earrings
Betsy & Iya
- Simplicity is the Dali Hoop Earrings’ most notable strength. The hand-formed curved hoop wires and lightweight 1.25” classic triangles will flatter any face and elevate any style. 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 earwire, brass triangle. 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.
