Sergio's "Olmec Blue" Guatemalan Jadeite Multi-Piece Ear Flares
Our customer Sergio has sent us some very nice photographs of his one of a kind multi-piece Mesoamerican inspired jade ear flare reproductions, produced by head Onetribe artisan Jared Karnes. After over 250 hours of work, we are so excited to finally see these pieces being worn. A huge amount of the research and time spent on them was dedicated to not just making a pair of pretty reproductions, but making a set of jewelry that could actually be worn comfortably. His feedback suggests that goal was achieved!
For a look at how these pieces were made, including a full description of the process and many progress photographs, visit the production story of these ear flares.
