Element ∴ Fire

Symbol ∴ Yaz ~ Freedom

 

The hand-etching on these earrings are reminiscent of floral motifs often depicted in Sahrawi (Western Saharan) jewelry. These symbols often associate women with the natural world, representing fertility, prosperity, and abundance. 

 

At the center of this earring design is the most well-known North African Amazigh symbol – the “Yaz” – which is featured on the flag. The Yaz is also depicted in the Jebel Collective logo. It shows a person reaching towards the sky, and represents the literal translation of “Amazigh” to “Free People”. Freedom is one of the key messages and values of this culture. 

 

These earrings support freedom, which is a fundamental human right, and the abundance that comes from expressing who we truly are, a reflection of nature’s beautiful diversity.

 Design & Fabrication

 

Jebel Collective is a collaboration between US designer Mary Page Terlizzi and Moroccan artist Said El-Sabayi. Page designed the collection while Said El-Sabayi crafts each piece by hand. All pieces are produced at Said’s home studio in Essaouira, Morocco. Visit “In the Studio” for more about our production process. As a social enterprise, Jebel Collective aims to preserve the tradition of silver-smithing across Morocco.

Sterling Silver Care

Polish your Desert Freedom Earrings regularly for sparkle, or wear tarnished for a more antique look. Use a designated silver polish such as Silvo with a microfiber cloth. Please note that any other type of cleaning solution may remove the black inlay of hand-etched design. Other cleaning methods may also scratch or damage the silver and/or gemstone. You can wear this piece in water. For more detailed information on how to safely store and care for your silver, click here

Packaging

 

Silver tarnishes over time when exposed to air. In an effort to keep your piece polished until it reaches you, we seal our products in jewelry-sized plastic bags. To reduce plastic use, we re-use these bags from other jewelry stores.
