Humphrey Earrings Twister
Earrings Twister 2mm in stainless steel
Ball 12 mm Tahitian pearl 11-12 mm
The goal that Humphrey, in collaboration with Norbert Muerrle, set for this line of jewelry was to find a stainless steel material that is elastic. After more than a year of development work, we now have a 2 mm thick fabric that consists of many individual stainless steel threads in different alloys and thicknesses. The stainless steel threads are twisted and processed into one another. Only the right arrangement provides the desired properties.
With this ear jewelry, the bracket can be easily opened to put on the earrings. The shackle then springs back to the closed position, securing the piece of jewelry against loss. The weight is limited and the earrings are comfortable to wear.
The design of the balls may be reminiscent of the "retro style". What is certain is that these pieces are simply beautiful.
Humphrey's Tahitian Pearls:
The black-lipped Pinctada Margaritafera oyster produces Tahitian black pearls off the islands of French Polynesia. The oyster is quite large, sometimes reaching 30 centimeters in diameter. Therefore, the pearls are often large. Their natural, dark colors make them unique. They can take on gray, silver, or charcoal-like shades.
The HUMPHREY jewelery wearer can therefore be sure that she owns a special piece of jewellery.
Dangers to the Pearls
Due to their chemical composition, pearls are sensitive to chemical and physical influences (e.g. they should be removed for showering and washing the hair).
They consist mainly of calcium carbonate and the organic horny substance conchyn. Pearls are sensitive to excessive heat, drought and moisture.
There are special cleansing baths for this that are mild. If possible, pearls should not be ultrasonically cleaned.
You can easily clean the beads yourself from time to time. Place the pearl in a bath of lukewarm water with a dash of mild dish soap and a little alcohol and brush gently. Then rinse the bead with clear water and dry the bead with a soft cloth. Every two to three years you can carefully rub the pearl with lanolin.
A piece of pearl jewelery gives pleasure on many days and for a lifetime!
