This earrings are part of the Wirikuta collection
Wirikuta means "Land of the Hikuri". It is a sacred site to the Wixarrica Huichol Indians high in the mountains of centra Mexico, between the Sierra Madre Occidental and the Zacatecas ranges. In Wixarricas's mythology it is believed the world was created in Wirikuta.
To create this collection, the designer combined different elements and textures such as the peyote, a small, spineless cactus with psychoactive alkaloids that can be found in the Mexican desert.
One large Peyote is worn on the back of the ear while a smaller Peyote lays on the front of the ear
