These little h earrings are an ultra modern alternative to traditional pearl posts. Hisano Shepherd has carved out the center portion of luminous pink freshwater keshi pearls and set them with a nest of tiny violet amethysts. This unorthodox design approach was inspired by her fascination with natural geodes and can be worn with everything from casual to formal. They attach to 14K yellow gold posts.

Los Angeles, CA - Born in Japan and growing up between Tokyo and Los Angeles, Hisano Shepherd found her inspiration for jewelry at a young age. Inspired by the naturally formed crystal geodes sold in Tucson gem shows, Hisano began experimenting with slicing hollow, freshwater soufflé pearls. The resulting concave interior is the perfect housing for precious gemstones, resembling a naturally formed geode when set. Each piece is hand-created in her LA studio. 

Jewelry ... can be collaboration of techniques, ideas, and materials that converge together to make different emotions and meanings. I strive to create beautiful wearable pieces that provoke wonderment, attraction, and disturbance."
