The Infernal Storm Earrings —
The Dance of the Storm Collection
All of the souls Dante encounters in the Inferno are subject to tormenting elements. In the 5th canto, the circle of lust, he meets the lovers Paolo and Francesca. They are trapped in an eternal storm, jettisoned from one side to the next, bound together, in a manner that is both tragic and beautiful.
Without the ability to change their situation, all they can do is dance in the storm, as it takes them at their mercy. In speaking to Dante of their time on earth, telling stories of how they fell in love over the tale of Lancelot and Guinever, they move with the infernal wind, and move the reader with their narrative.
“The Dance of the Storm” collection explores the way in which we are subject to external forces, and reminds us to dance with them, as we go.
The Infernal Storm Earrings are comprised from 24 karat gold plated bronze and baroque pearls.
The gold drop studs are 2.8 centimetres in length and 2.1 centimetres wide.
