Tinik Pearl Earrings


We are constantly inspired by shapes found in nature, and this one in particular reminds us of "tinik" or fish bones. Weirdly beautiful, right? These oddly shaped treasures from the Philippine sea are called keshi pearls, but I like to call them "ugly pearls." An eccentric alternative to perfectly round pearls, I created this minimalist design to highlight the beautiful aberrations that nature has imprinted on each ugly pearl.

This item is crafted by hand in the Philippines using freshwater pearls. Please note that each ugly pearl is unique and that each "flaw" is as intended by Mother Nature. Slight differences in size and colors may occur in the process making. Please handle with care.

Available in two colors.

Silver is 3.8" long and 1.5" wide.

Black is 3.5" long and 1" wide.
