Upbeat - Threaded
Upbeat is a dramatic style that departs from the traditional post or hoop earring.
When I searched my memory for the main symbol or inspiration that led to this form, I was left with the impression that there are many elements of Finnish life embedded here.
From the tools of the traditional forester and ice-carver, to the standard national fare, the herring, which we still catch out of the baltic sea. The shape is simple enough to represent all of these at the same time.
The style can be modified by how the precious stone is attached.
The bead becomes an accent rather than a statement in this style, as the silver metal continues through and loops on the far side. Overall it gives a slightly more simplistic and zen sensation to the eye.
Gemstones in the pictures are 8mm amethyst.
The earrings are sterling silver (925).
