Location: Santiago, Chile; Material: Copper & Lapis Lazuli
I bought these awesome and unique earrings at the same artisan market in Santiago that I purchased the lapis lazuli and silver ring from. The reason I titled this entry “A Chilean Special” is because, technically, it is. Copper and lapis lazuli are the main jewelry-materials that are harvested right in Chile. Anyone who plans on traveling in the near future to the country, remember that! You can get a variety of beautiful pieces made out of both of these materials at very reasonable prices. These earrings are so different from other things I own. When I saw them, I loved them so much and they were so inexpensive that I bought not only this pair, but another very similar pair! (To be shown in a future entry).
