Iphestos was thrown from the heavens during a fight between his parents, Zeus and Hera. He landed in the sea and was found by the nereids, who took him in and brought him up as if he were one of their own. They encouraged his crafstmanship and his creative abilties, his workshop was in the depths of the volcanoes and the Earths's core. The Nereids played a vital role in shaping Iphestos and his development during his childhood and adult life.
This collection of earings, made from solid silver and pearls, has been inspired by the influence and nurturing role that the Nereids played in Iphestos' life.
The pearls for these earings have been individually selected to reflect the feminine principle as well as the complex characterstics and personalities of the nereids.
These earings have been handcrafted using a wax mold.
