UNDULE : Make an exotic entrance with Linda Hagobian’s bold ebony wood cluster earrings. Lightweight, hand-shaped ebony wood hoops from Mali, West Africa are combined in an organic, yet bold style. Brushed sterling silver studs with omega closure let the dangle of sensuous ebony take center stage.
Linda uses turquoise, ebony, diamonds, Italian-crafted 18-karat gold, and sterling silver findings in all of her pieces. While she crafts the designs, it takes a global village to assemble Hagobian's pieces, from the artisans in Italy who painstakingly make sure each graduated piece of turquoise is of the right size and color and perfectly strung, to the 42 African men and women who carve the ebony into precise shapes. As a sign of gratitude, the company donates part of the proceeds of the collection to Dogon Schulen, which builds schools in Mali, West Africa.
