Hazelnut Bead and Coral Earrings
These Hazelnut Bead and Coral earrings are perfect for daily wear as well as for special occasions. Each hollow-form “hazelnut” bead is hand-made using centuries-old filigree techniques and .925 silver.
Luis began working at his father’s filigree jewelry workshop in Tamames, Salamanca when he was 14. He and his brothers now represent the third generation of goldsmiths in their family. Holding tweezers, the Méndez brothers draw fine, pliable, silver threads into intricate designs through curling, twisting, and plaiting of the metal. The threads are smoothed and twisted and then joined at points of contact. The added coral adds a pop of color for a unique look.
