With a raw, feminine and edgy look, these Variance Objects earrings exude an earthy, eclectic vibe. Asymmetrically sized nuggets of shimmering opal have angular, jagged edges and a smooth surface with bright iridescence. They are held in place by gold prongs and attach to gold posts creating a contemporary alternative to the traditional stud earrings.

SANTA CRUZ, CA - Nicole Rimedio creates jewelry that highlights the natural beauty of raw materials. Her jewelry shows the earth, fire, and hand that it came from.  While she received her BA in Architecture and Urbanism from Smith College, and her master’s degree in Landscape Architecture from UC Berkeley, making jewelry has always been her path. Nicole founded Variance in 2013 with her partner Scott.  Scott manages operations and Nicole is the artist. They both have a passion for gemstones and together they source fine gem specimens and rough rock from gem collectors and small scale miners.
