Aurora Lopez Flat Gypsy Hoops

I love these.

Each piece of Aurora Lopez-Mejia's jewelry is hand-stamped with a message meant to empower. Many of the words are from a collection of 18th-century dictionaries of the English language and are stamped using letters from an antique letterpress. Aurora believes that the power of language can be transformational.

Hand-hammered inscription on earring reads: "Be the change you wish to see in the world..."on the other: "The biggest risk in life is not risking."

Available and (on sale) at Auto.
