Anuket Deco Channel Earrings - Flood Plains and Fertility
*PRODUCT & PROCESS*
Inspired by Art Deco’s exaggerated interpretation of Egyptian motifs, I was intrigued to look back at Egyptian myths. The Art Deco motifs brought to mind floodplains which brought me to the story of Anuket, goddess personification of the Nile. She is nourisher of the fields, goddess of the hunt, and a protective deity of childbirth.
This piece has a subtle grace; it evokes images of floodplains in channeled waters or other images of fertility. A wonderful piece for daily wear or a gift. It speaks to both Art Deco design and its take on Egyptian motifs in a striking yet organic sense. Please find the matching necklace available in my Etsy shop (www.mspring.etsy.com).
*MEASUREMENTS & MATERIAL*
The surfaces are available in as Textured or Smooth. The variation is subtle and just two ways I've played with finishing/polishing them. The slight difference can be seen in the images. The textured has touch of visual roughness (still smooth to the touch!) in portions that contrast with the smooth surface elsewhere. The Smooth surface option does not have this texturing.
The narrow, hand cast earring drops are 1.25 x 0.38" (32 x 9.5mm). Earrings are available in solid sterling silver or gold fill (x3-4 the thickness of gold plate).
Silver and gold pieces can be maintained with a polishing cloth. Ammonia will deteriorate gold layers, for this reason avoid commercial polishing products and chlorinated pools.
