Product Description

Maasai Glass Earrings

Designers Marina and Susanna Sent, whose work has been exhibited at museums and galleries throughout Europe, belong to a family who has worked for generations in Murano, Italy, the center for the production of Venetian glass. The art of Murano glass-blowing was highlighted in MoMA's past exhibition Sculpture in Glass, featuring works by Pablo Picasso, Max Ernst, and Jean Arp, designed and executed in glass in the ancient factories of Murano. The sisters continue the long-standing tradition of glasswork with their jewelry design, adding a contemporary flair to the timeless art form. This design of these earrings is inspired by colors and necklaces worn by the Maasai people of Kenya and northern Tanzania. The earrings have sterling-silver posts, each suspending a red glossy glass bead.
