    Antique Bird Mosaic Earrings

    With an eye for meaningful antiques, Anna presents both museum-quality cameos as well as cameos she personally designs as contemporary, one-of-a-kind jewelry.

    These tiny pieces of tesserae, datable around 1860, feature birds previously depicted on a garland of flowers part of the Grand Tour design inspiration. The Grand Tour was a design movement into Western Europe undertaken by young European aristocrats starting in the 17th century. This movement intended to perfect and extend the knowledge young Europeans had about history, art and culture. These earrings are a symbol of a journey to perfect and discover ourselves.
