MAZDEVALLIA Amazonia Statement Earrings

$75.00

Bold, exotic and colourful, just like the Amazon!

Length: 90mm

Width: 30mm at the widest part

Hand painted sustainably sourced cork fabric, metallic gold and hand painted Piñatex®,  iridescent PVC, hand painted abstract designs on hand cut polymer clay shapes. 

Piñatex® is a beautiful vegan friendly, natural, sustainably produced textile that was developed for use as a sustainable alternative to mass produced leather. The hand cut Piñatex® components have a pastel pink painted back.

All earrings are designed, painted and completely handmade. No two pairs are ever the same! As these earrings are made by hand, there may be some very slight variations in the colours and shapes to the pair pictured.

These earrings are ultra-lightweight, use stirling silver ear wires and are comfortable to wear. They can easily be worn all day.

Mazdevallia is the work of artist and jewellery maker Maylin Evanochko. Originally a painter of large scale abstract works, in 2017 she began making jewellery in her Melbourne-based studio from individually handcrafted components, considering each pair of earrings like miniature works of art. 

Her particular brand of celebratory quirk is a perfect blend of fun, cheek and fashion, showcasing what's possible with slow-made techniques whilst embracing the beauty of imperfection.
