I saw both of these when I visited the Sundance store in Corte Madera last weekend. The images don't do either pair justice, particularly the pearl set, which looks almost ordinary online.
In person, the pearls are quite large and more oval or oblong than round, while the solid gold hoops glow above, carefully hammered and worked into thickish arcs o' gold. That's the kind of work I want to do; it's my ideal interpretation of metal. The earrings have just enough "roughness" to show they were made individually, yet they're smooth and deftly formed...just enough breadth to show gold, yet versatile enough to wear with just about anything.
From the site: Jes MaHarry will donate 10% of proceeds from each purchase to combat global warming.
The top pair also struck me as glowing of gold...they're daintier than the pearls (and more affordable).
