Our Liryo Drop Earrings combine traditional Philippine artistry with modern-day design.
We’ve taken inspiration from the Calla Lily, a flower full of symbolism and story. It’s been associated with rebirth, life, beauty, and resurrection. Calla Lilies are often gifted to bless departed souls, but are also commonly used in weddings to celebrate newlyweds. This flower celebrates both beginnings and endings, a powerful symbol to welcome your next season of life.
Let this piece bring you back to tagsibol (Spring) in the Philippines. Handcrafted by a Nanay and Tatay team of artisans in Benguet, our Sibol collection is designed to celebrate your new season of growth, healing, and joy.
About The Craftsmanship: Gold filigree is a meticulous and rare technique perfected by native plateros for centuries, every heirloom carries the proud story of our pre-colonial heritage and of fine Filipino craftsmanship. The platero begins by melting blocks of gold or silver, repeatedly hammering and cooling them until they become fine and delicate threads. The threads are carefully shaped by hand into "kalado" or lace-like patterns inspired by nature. To craft more intricate pieces, the platero individually welds small drops together to form beautiful heirlooms.
