Description

Based in Chicago, Alicia Goodwin launched Lingua Nigra (Latin for 'black tongue') soon after graduating from New York's Fashion Institute of Technology. She is inspired by nature with a focus on ancient talismans and Victorian era pieces. Using several techniques, most notable acid etching and metal reticulation, her work transforms during one of the final steps in her process; electroplating with 22kt gold. Reminiscent of an actual door knocker, the bottom and top of these dynamic earrings are hand carved from wax, then cast in brass. There is texture to the top of the earring, while the bottom stays smooth.

  • 22kt gold plated brass
  • Sterling silver ear posts
