This Beautiful piece of earrings were inspired by The Powell Arch in Galveston Texas built for a 1986 celebration of Mardi Gras as well as a salute to the Texas Sesquicentennial on Galveston Island.
“The Powell arch at 24th and Mechanic is a breezy, colorful structure of mast, rigging and pennants, suggestive of the sailing ships that called on Galveston during its glory days as a major seaport. The structure is crowned by a double arch and an exaggerated oculus — both direct references to master Galveston architect Nicholas Clayton.”
This place is a historical marker in our Community, we wanted to create something that resembles our traditions and culture that bring us together.

These earrings are extremely lightweight that you will forget you are wearing earrings.
They were made for sensitive ears as well! We gold plated (14k) the back post.
Laissez les bon temps rouler!
Happy Mardi Gras!
