The design of these earrings are inspired by the tumi, which translated from Quechua means ceremonial knife, which was also used as jewelry.
The link between the tumis and the magical and religious rituals, made it an omnipresent element connected with life, death and divinity. Today it has a mystical meaning, it is an amulet that protects its owner against evil, and welcomes prosperity and good luck.
