Frnge Eye of the Beholder Studs
Regular price $118.00
✨Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder✨
Frnge's Beholder studs are made with a fresh water pearl at its centre, and adorned with smaller ones on its sides.
Each earring is beaded by hand by Julie-Anne using Japanese glass beads, and hang from gold vermeil ball studs. Gold vermeil is a high quality gold-finish that is composed of a thick layer of gold over solid sterling silver. The thickness of the gold portion is what really sets vermeil jewelry apart from simple gold plated pieces. The thickness of the gold portion must be at least 2.5 microns, which makes it longer lasting than other gold finishes, and is a great alternative to solid gold. With much wear, over time your piece will fade to a soft light gold.
When you shop at Victoire, you're supporting designers like Julie-Anne, the Vancouver-based maker behind FRNGE. Dakelh and Metis on her mother's side, Julie-Anne wasn't able to engage with the culture when she was growing up, as her mother was adopted into a non-indigenous family. She first learned how to bead from her Indigenous school counsellor in grade 3 and would spend countless lunch hours with her doing this. She didn't realize it then but it was so special to have someone like her give little pieces of her culture so that Julie-Anne could reconnect with hers. Most of her work is beaded using traditional and contemporary styles, and she uses it both to connect with her roots as well as to try to bring something new to the world.
