The Eyes of Bordoni

Flamboyant & full of drama, just like Miss Irene Bordoni herself...

The Eyes of Bordoni features an elaborate & intricate detail of wire wrapping, hand-sculpted & manipulated from different scratches of sterling silver wires. Three different fabricated frames are interconnected with sterling silver twisted jump-rings and chains. Adorning her lovely silhouette are the opulent gems of:

~ AAA Palest Teal Green Rock Quartz Faceted Onion
~ AA Vesuvianite Faceted
~ Amethyst Faceted Briolette Beads
~ Fool'd Gold Pyrite Faceted Rondelles

Further enhances her beauty are teeny tiny piece of Thai Sterling seed beads & some dainty Bali Sterling Silver Daisy spacer. Below the circle ring of golden brownish pyrite & watery AAA Teal Green Rock Quartz (which portrays Miss Bordoni’s eye) we have gorgeously luscious falls of Fine Silver & AA Vesuvianite Faceted Beads. Very royalty indeed!

The earring measures 2.5” from the top of earring hook (sculpted by me) with 1.5” wide.
