Gary Elias has been designing and creating jewelry for more than 35 years. Having relocated from Southern California where he worked for well-known jewelry stores, he began designing his own timeless collection. Gary is a silver & gold smith, so he utilizes a number of techniques to create his pieces. He forges silver with fire, cuts with a jewelers saw, hand hammers, files, soldier, tumbling and polishing before putting the final touches on each piece. This pair of earrings is high impact - long and sleek - with a high shine, they elongate the face and are great with long or short hair and truly can be day or evening!!
