Edgy, modern, and begging for a closer look, these little h earrings are a striking, innovative combination of materials. The luminous white freshwater keshi pearls attach to 14K yellow gold posts. Dangling below are large, faintly cool-toned souffle pearls with carved out holes. Each hole contains a nest of tiny, jagged blue sapphires. Stunning in their alternative design, they are the perfect alternative to traditional pearl earrings.

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."
