Erica Weiner Isosceles Opal Earrings

$ 54.00

These delicate opal stud earrings come in three colorways—milky white, fiery neon-flecked green and deep golden black. In addition to being gorgeous, opals are reputed to have healing properties and the ability to stimulate the creative imagination.

Their design is classic and modern, but the materials and craftsmanship are firmly rooted in American history. Silver-smithing and stone-setting was once a major source of income for Native Americans. In New Mexico, members of the Zuni Nation are still making a living by producing traditional Native American jewelry in small batches—we're thrilled to be collaborating with them on this project. In addition to supporting their craft-based business, we're donating a percentage of the profits from the sale of these earrings to TEWA Women United, a non-profit group for Native American women that seeks to address issues of suicide, alcoholism, and sexual violence through female empowerment.

Erica was born in Brooklyn and raised not too far away, in a small suburb in New Jersey. After earning her degree in Art History at Vassar College, she spent a few years touring the world as a costumer on Broadway shows, then a few more in the trenches as a sample-maker for various NYC fashion designers. She began making jewelry as a way to relieve stress after work, but before long, she had a full-fledged cult following, and after a year her hobby was her new career.
