About Lingua Nigra: Lingua Nigra is designed and crafted by artist Alicia Goodwin. The work is inspired by nature, with a focus on ancient talismans, Victorian era work and mourning sentimental jewelry. Made of brass, silver and gold, extra care is given to these works. With nods to everything from markings on beetles to the texture on trees, Lingua Nigra is meant to evoke a timeless feeling that can be worn everyday, because this form of art should be shared by wearing.

Earring measures approximately 1" from top of the earwire to the bottom of the focal piece.
