From the jewelry designers at Turkish label Monapetra, these handcrafted glass pendant earrings feature a delicate poppy motif plucked from a floorspread fragment (late 17th century) attributed to India in The Metropolitan Museum of Art collection.
Īris SÜloş Özbaş and Begüm Özbaş Kisakürek are the visionary duo behind Monapetra. History is the vernacular by which they articulate their timeless collections interpreting artistic and cultural traditions from around the world.
