The Gypsy culture has added immeasurable wealth, awareness and import to our world today. My excitement in coining these gorgeous leather hoop earrings comes from several inspirations that I wanted to share with you in hopes you find joy in its meaning. First and foremost, my spirit animal, Stevie Nicks and her song ‘Gypsy’ – hearing this magical melody in my early years shaped my perspective and free spirited nature. Secondly, I have discovered the beauty in how the gypsy, nomadic and bohemian culture has infused into my way of living and being. It’s a life of free choice, simplicity, raw earthly values, strong community and an absolute passion in creativity.
From what I’ve come to know, traveling is not a pastime or leisure activity, but a way of life for a Gypsy. In fact, a common belief of the latter part of the nineteenth century suggested that the inclination to travel, coined “wanderlust,” was a product of genetic determinants. This perspective was the basis for the claim that “it was as natural for Gypsies to move as it was for the majority of the population to stay in one place.”
Metal finish options: Gold, Silver and Antique Bronze.
Weight of each earring in ounces: 0.14 to 0.20 from smallest to largest hoop.
Completely handmade from start to finish — custom wire wrapped metal hoops are tucked perfectly into the richest and most supple New Zealand deerhide leather. These are shockingly lightweight and will be your favorite new pair in your personal jewelry collection. They pair gorgeously with casual denim or leggings, but they also speak volumes accessorized with a flirty cocktail dress for a date night!
