Dramatic earrings with large leaves suspended on suede ribbons from a central leaf, all lightweight gold-plated bronze.

Foteini Liami has been creating handmade jewelry for over 30 years. She says of her work, "There was something inside me that wanted to express itself. I was always fascinated by the colors of the earth, the stunning light of Greece, its incredible seas in all shades of blues and its magnificent skies. All these moved me since I was a child. I think that it was an inner power which pushed me to change life completely.”

She adds, “All metals are cut by hand because we want them to have these little discrepancies that makes them unique, are hammered by hand polished and finally gold plated by hand. We use very light leaves of bronze so that the piece is light like feather but without losing its gravity."
All proceeds from the MCA Store support the exhibitions and programs of the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
