Lava and ceramic bead drop earrings. Large hand-painted ceramic beads, finished with gold, sit below black lava beads from Mount Etna.
The black lava has been treated so that it will not fade or leave traces on clothes, while the ceramic beads have been first sculpted and then fired, before being painted and fired a second time. Once the delicate gold embellishment has been added, they are fired a third time.
Made in Sicily.
More about the brand
BaroccOro is a Sicilian jewellery brand created by designer Marinella Stornello. The designs are inspired by the traditions of Sicily, and Marinella frequently uses lava from Mount Etna in her work.
All the pieces are handmade by skilled craftsmen, with materials including sterling silver of Italian origin and lava that has undergone a patented process ensuring that it will not fade or leave traces on clothes. The ceramic jewellery is first sculpted and then fired, before being delicately painted and fired a second time. If pieces have gold embellishment, they are finished with pure gold and fired a third time.
