THE DESIGN
 
Cordella is a ribbon, or a headband, and it was originally worn in classical antiquity, especially in cultures of the Mediterranean, Levant and Persia, including Hellenic culture. At that time, Cordellas were a very narrow bands of cloth, leather or some form of garland, frequently worn by athletes. The marble statues of the gods also had bound their heads with cloth headbands. 
 
Furthermore, there are numerous cult images, trees, urns, monuments, animal sacrifices with ribbons bound around them. We have come across many of these in museums and history books, and it drove us to create these earrings, which have the fluid form of the ribbons mixed with the rigid properties of the bronze and gold which it is casted in. We wanted to achieve this mix between fluid and stiff. The two sides of the earring are different, the one is slightly shorter than the other. This is done purposely by design.
