Mini-Byte Quillwork Earrings (Pond)
$160.00 Sold Out
Beyond Buckskin owner Jessica R. Metcalfe collaborated with award-winning artist and metalsmith Pat Pruitt for these spectacular earrings.
The front design is inspired by porcupine quillwork panels from hide coats made by women from the Turtle Mountain and Red River region in the 1700s, remixed and updated and laser-engraved on Titanium in rich color combinations with different finishes that change like iridescent wonders according to light and angle. While they are inspired by porcupine quillwork - which is an ancient practice that predates contact and is unique to Native North America - they have a distinct 8-Bit digital vibe, and we love the fusion of these elements that ultimately create precious pieces that transcend time and space.
Pruitt works exclusively in Stainless Steel, Titanium, and Zirconium, and melds technology with age-old designs. Titled "Mini-Byte," these earrings are part of the exclusive 8-Bit Quillwork Earring Collection. Each are one of a kind and signed. They hang 2.5" long. Limited edition. This item ships from the US.
