Medieval Floaral Azure Earrings: This jewellery is inspired from a beechwood box made in 1580 in Venice. This box may have been used for combs, brushes and other small personal accessories. Contemporary illustrations show such boxes hung on the wall in a bed chamber beside a dressing mirror with similar decoration. This type of decoration appears to have been a Venetian speciality, found from about 1570 on musical instruments, book-bindings, caskets and frames. The lustrous colours painted on bone (or sometimes mother-of-pearl) emulated the decorated surfaces of imported products which were probably described at the time as alla zemina (in the Persian manner), or petteniera turchesca (in the Turkish manner).
