Osiris

baltera jewelry nyc osiris

The inspiration for the Osiris line came while researching braids at the Metropolitan Museum, specifically from the Sarcophagus of Harkhebit, a masterpiece of Egyptian hard-stone carving. False beards like this were worn by the typically clean shaven Egyptian pharaohs in order to link themselves to Osiris, the god of the afterlife and rebirth, in hopes of appropriating his power and authority. The practice crossed genders with many female pharaohs donning these elaborately braided beards. The minimalistic yet striking geometry is the template for our modern interpretation of this timeless design and is highlighted in our OSIRIS STIX earrings.

The OSIRIS STUD is our mini interpretation of this form.

We can’t promise you’ll appropriate any of Osiris’ authority or power, but we’re not willing to rule it out either.
