Cleopatra's Bling

'Urraca' Earrings with Jade

| /

The Urraca are half-hoop earrings with a stud fastener, adorned with a jade gem, and looped golden chain.

Queen Urraca, nicknamed "la temeraria" for her recklessness, strategically asserted power through marriages, overcoming unpleasant husbands. Rising to the throne through her bloodline, she resented sharing power with brutish men, taking many lovers and defying contemporary norms.

Founded by Olivia Cummings, Cleopatra's Bling is the result of a life long love of travels and trinkets. With her time split between Melbourne, Paris and Istanbul - Olivia treasure hunts in the Istanbul Grand Bazaar for pieces that she hand-carves and reworks into new designs, with a hint of nostalgia.

Handcrafted and individually cast, each piece is unique, which we believe is what gives it its beauty.
