Known for it's creme-ish yellowish hue this wild silk is local to the state of Assam in East India. This silk carefully hand woven together to create a durable silk textile.
Now, muga silk can be dyed but traditionally since origins (3000-2500 BCE) it's been known for it's "buttery" color and luster which increases as it's washed over time. My mom has one one Muga silk sari, and seeing it in person definitely explains why it's one of the finest natural silks in the world.
I had a vision for these earrings for a while but I was struggling ro make them. I tried to create a hand woven texture within the clay before adding the pattern and golden sheen sheen in traditional muga silk saris. These earrings though large, can be worn either on handmade gold filled fish hooks, or ball posts for ease of comfort- plus their so light weight you won't realize they're a statement piece.
