Black Root Earrings
Betsy & Iya
- Universally appealing, these brass diamond shaped earrings hang perfectly from betsy & iya's signature ear wires. Details like stamping and oxidizing make them really standout. Made of stamped and oxidized brass vintage inspired charms on long sterling silver-filled ear wires. They measure approximately 2.5" from top of ear wire. Geometric focal piece measures approximately 1 1/8" tall by 1 1/8" wide.
betsy & iya started in 2008 in a coffeeshop with a notebook, a bright red pencil, and nothing to lose. Among scribbles and coffee stains, the words “jewelry making” appeared in that notebook. Betsy wrote it down, thought about it for a while, and then she made some jewelry. And it worked, so she did it some more. Now they're a handcrafted institution in Portland, OR, regularly designing and creating some of the city's most popular works.
