Our artisan Barbara relinquished a corporate career to fulfill a passion embodied into these handmade earrings. A lover of the Italian gilding process of the Renaissance, she experimented for eighteen months until she perfected the process for her EVOCATEUR designs, which are now famous. These earrings take five full days to create, where her team of Connecticut artisans work together with her to add multiple layers of 22k gold leaf over brass, enamel and Swarovski crystal elements for exceptional depth and brilliance. These designs are inspired by the wrought iron work found in the old French Quarter. Each pair of earrings are detailed with gorgeous black, white and gold hues blending harmoniously together as it was crafted with such precision and beauty that honors the passion of the artisan. Handcrafted exclusively for Uno Alla Volta, from the hearts and hands of the artisans.
