Tiny 14K solid gold Frida earrings
Inspired by a famous portrait of Frida Kahlo.
The “hand” earring that she wears in a couple of her portraits was given to her by Pablo Picasso. The hand on the banderole as well as on the earrings, makes reference at what is called in Mexico “milagros”. Milagros are pieces made of wax or ivory shaped in the form of the part of the human body that the person wants to be healed, and left on the altar of the Saint they pray to.
The hand is about is 1cm long on a creole of 1,3 cm
