Gold-plated silver Earrings, from Sara Maia, Bilros collection.
This collection recreates the technique of the traditional “renda de bilros”. The jewels are manually woven over the “pique” (drawing) with the use of pins and bobbins, composing an intricate mesh. The semiprecious stones and the crystals complement the beauty and elegance of these exclusive pieces.
925 Sterling silver
DESIGNER AS AUTHOR
Sara Maia is an artisan who develops pieces in silver and precious stones using the bobbin lacing technique. This technique is the result of successively crisscrossing silver thread executed on a loom with the aid of needles and bobbins.
From this adaptation of a technique normally used in the production of textiles to jewelry making are born unique pieces with 925‰ silver thread.
