This pendant is inspired by earrings worn during the Tayrona period, in the Sierra Nevada region of Colombia.
Spanish chroniclers who met the Tayrona wrote marvelous descriptions and accounts. Friar Pedro de Aguado had the following to say in 1573: "The people are greatly adorned with gold objects and jewels. The males wear earrings and nose rings in their nostrils, and large breastplates on their chests. Around their necks are many kinds of beads. …The women wear almost the same jewels as the men".
