These earrings were designed as part of the exhibit in the 3rd Asalah Fashion Competition, held in Oman in October 2009. Their form is inspired by a historic piece that dates back to the Byzantine Empire. The original tassel held tiny paisley filigrees. The translucent crystal contrasts with the ornate bead below it, and a delicate, wispy tassel adds liveliness to the piece. (See matching pendant)
