A pair of earrings from my workshop, with antique Italian petra dura drops, 19th century.

The art of hardstone inlay and precious stone inlay has been around since Roman times, however it really became fashionable during the 17th century. Many pieces of cabinetry (Cabinets of Wonder), table tops, and other follies were inlaid in this method.

The earring tops are from a vintage bracelet and are mid century modern and are clip mounted.
