Inspired by nature and creativity, Rafael Morales makes each of these beautiful grape leaf earrings in Ciudad Veija, Guatemala. Each handcrafted leaf earring is made of the perfect combination of sterling silver, copper, zinc and nickel to give the dangle leaf earring a shimmery golden appearance. They are hand-cut and hang delicately from sterling silver earring hooks. Each leaf earring falls about one 1.5 inches long.
Rafael works side by side with Otto at his home in Ciudad Vieja, where he has lived for the past 14 years. He has raised his daughter and two sons with a strong set of values and believes that work ethic is one of the most important things people can achieve. After working for years at one of the large jade manufacturers, Rafael has decided to collaborate with small partners, such as Ambos Designs in order to create a healthy work environment with ethical business practices. This incredibly talented artisan aims to generate his livelihood in the future through his own unique designs, such as these gorgeous handmade leaf earrings.
