Flora Post Earring
 Is this a gift?

  • Sterling silver post ear wires. Spheres are approximately 1/2" in diameter. Each sphere is carefully handcrafted from 12 sterling silver triangles. They are soldered, assembled, and connected together to create a refined array of floral elegance. Made by Chihiro Makio in Somerville, MA.
  • Chihiro Makio has always loved creating precious little things, even from an early age. At first she thought she would become a painter when she started college as a studio-art major. There she discovered great fun and endless possibilities with three-dimensional materials. She learned how to work with wood, fiber, and metal. Transferring to a different school gave her the opportunity to meet another material: glass. Chihiro Makio completed a bachelor's fine art degree at the Massachusetts College of Art as a glass major with a minor in small metals/jewelry. Since then she has won several awards, including Saul Bell Design Awards from 2003 through 2007, and Niche Award in 2005.
