These earrings are handmade in collaboration with Anav.handmade using Crochet techniques and a Gold Vermeil pair of Hoops.
The art of crocheting is an ancestral technique and skill that our grandmothers used to teach us as kids. Ana's Grandma always tells that she learned when she was very young, with her mum and aunts, who brought the technique when they immigrate to Brazil from Italy. After that, Ana's Grandma teached all women in her family how to crochet.
Anavhandmade is a project that rescues these techniques, making Crochet it in the same way it used to be in the past: a ritual where the women sit together in circle and the oldest women teach to the others how to weave. Every single knot has so much story to tell.
We propose a minimal and sustainable approach to Crochet, creating jewellery pieces for everyday wear.
Beho x Anav.handmade collection is made by talented artisans, based in a small town called Bento Goncalves, in Brazil.
The yarn used are produced as a result of a recycling process, where cotton waste from the textile industry is transformed into new yarns, in a clean process, without using chemical dyes. For many people, textile waste means the end of a process. For us, it can be used as the beginning of a great transformation.
- Hoops measurement: 18 mm of diameter and 1 mm of thickness
- Metal description: Gold vermeil. which is a high-quality form of gold plating in which a thick layer of gold (10 microns of 18k gold) is coated upon sterling silver.
- Every earring comes in an organic cotton pouch and a plantable box that has mustard seeds inside to reduce our waste.
