Crescent Hoop Earrings

Crescent Hoop Earrings



With their modernist design and feel, these lightweight hoop earrings by Lisa Colby are at once unconventional and understated, rugged and refined. Each piece has a gently domed surface that is then brushed to a bright satin finish that sparkles with light as it moves. Featuring a hand forged wire silver rivet clasp and catch, these earrings are made from scratch from sheets of sterling silver and sterling silver wire.

Dimensions: 1.5″ length x 1.25″ width

Lisa Colby Though she lives in Asheville now, Lisa was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. Growing up, she was surrounded by the arts, and at a young age became interested in ceramics and thought that she would pursue a career as a ceramicist. These plans changed, however, when she took a class in metalworking while studying art at Wayne State University; she had found her medium. After college, Lisa learned the complexities of jewelry production working under a jewelry maker in Nashville before finally devoting herself to crafting her own jewelry in 1993. Lisa’s work is a testament to the power of handcrafted art: she makes each piece from scratch, cutting, shaping and re-forging sheets of sterling silver, taking inspiration for her distinctive, dynamic designs from the natural world and the rugged, elemental quality of her materials.
