Mea B'Fly earrings are a great fusion of the powerful past with the energy of today. Each graphic print is made by Bird, starting with a focal background image that she elaborates with other design elements. She hand-produces each earring by adhering the small art prints to a wood base and topping them off with surgical steel earring hooks and jump rings.
The earrings are bright with vivid color patterns, lightweight for a comfortable wear, and glossy with a slick overcoat to protect the design.
Throughout the month of July, we will be retiring a different design each week on a Sunday night at midnight.

July 21: Traditional Nites. These earrings feature the image of Lakota chief Red Cloud, and they are the perfect accessory for your modern-day traditional nights. Bird explains, "I've always seen this famous image and thought, 'How powerful.' There is a confidence that comes with wearing these earrings - a confidence you see in many women when they are out on the town dressed to impress and/or dancing in the powwow arena. Traditional Nites displays color expression through fashion, whether Traditional or Contemporary. It is a fine line us women love to walk."
