One of a kind earings with Ishani, a traditional Syrian ceramics usually made into tiles to decorate bathrooms and court yards in traditional Damascene houses. Originally from Iran, the city of Ishan, this fine sand enamel glazed ceramics was almost fading due to constant bombardments in the neighborhoods where the ovens used to cure this beautiful ceramics. Desperately wanting to attract attention to the fact that war was not only taking lives but was also destroying a heritage so precious not only for it’s beauty but also because it is a shared history of a people and that it can act as a unificator of a people that would otherwise be divided. So we commissioned a local Ishani craftsman to make small pieces that are a little easier to make since smaller, we had to throw half of them because they need a 7 hours straight of curing at 900 degrees and there was very little electricity with the constant fighting. And so the idea was to have words that are used commonly in Damascus instead of the traditional religious and or Koranic calligraphy used on Ishani. And so the calligraphy on the ishani earings says يؤبشني and تبان لك. Which are funny words in typical Damascene, one referring to utmost love and affection the latter a funny translation of the F word usually found in Arabic subtitles in movies and mangas. Your purchase of these beautiful earings will not only help preserve Syrian traditional crafts it will also provide women in conflict zone with badly needed income.
