Small Hand Stitched Huggie Earring
To create this piece I hand stitched fabric and then cast this fabric into metal, a technique I haven't seen done before.
This earring is part of the Women's Work collection, inspired by traditional quilting.
Since women's stories are often excluded from historical narratives, quilt makers used the "domestic arts" as a creative space to not only share their own perspective, but communicate messages of freedom, safety, progress and community.
Inspired by an exhibit on contemporary quilting that I saw in early 2020, this collection spotlights the idea that sewing and quilting has often been spoken down upon as, "Women's Work". Growing up in the Midwest and with a love for sewing myself, I wanted to create jewelry designs that pay homage to quilting as an art form.
My Handmade Quality Guarantee
- Each and every piece of Nina Berenato Jewelry is handmade by me and my team in my Austin, TX studio. I hand-build with heartfelt intention - knowing that my one of a kind designs will empower and strengthen you every time you wear it.
- Your jewelry is made with 100% recycled metals that are recycled and refined at United Metals, America’s largest environmentally-friendly refinery.
- The natural stones I use in some designs are truly special. They are ethically mined and sourced from a small family-owned lapidary based in India. No two stones are quite alike, making my stone pieces some of the best sellers.
-Our gold plating is applied 10x thicker than the industry standard!
- Everything that I make is hypoallergenic. We NEVER use nickel in any of our jewelry and my designs are safe for even the most sensitive skin.
- As a final step, I apply a protective coat on all of the jewelry so it’s ok to get wet, come in contact with lotions and perfumes, or even be in the pool.
