These Gaia Earrings come from Apis Atelier, a South African brand created by Nicola Hemmes in her Cape Town studio where she makes everything by hand. Inspired by nature, her travels, ancient mythology and the ocean, mementos found are born as the bones for this tactile jewellery line. Apis (meaning “bee” in Latin) uses old-world techniques to create imperfect modern heirlooms that engage the body and soul.
These ancient bronze handmade earrings is inspired by Gaia, the personification of the Earth in Greek Mythology, the ancestral mother of all life: the primal Mother Earth goddess. These earrings bear a feather-like leaf pod, representing the seed and its need to disperse. Wear them to ground you yet give you courage and flight on your journeys far and wide.
