Solid brass earrings with non-tarnishing silver finish giclee print of a beautiful shell design. Ear wires are hypo allergenic.

Many paintings of Venus include a scallop shell. For example, Botticelli's classically inspired 15th Century painting. The shell symbolized the feminine ideal. Outwardly, it can express the protective and nurturing principle, and inwardly female sexuality and love.

Designed by David Howell & Company to pay tribute to this artist tool, these earrings are a fun accessory and the perfect gift for artists who love colour.
