Palacio de Cristal pendientes/earrings

Made with sterling (92.5%) and fine (99%) silver, cubic zirconia, white topaz and rock crystal.
Inspired in the Palacio de Cristal of the Parque del Retiro in Madrid .
Silver has been oxidized to bring out the intricate shape of the piece.

The Palacio de Cristal or Crystal Palace is a large glass and steel building in Madrid, Spain.

It is located in the Retiro Park (a very large park in the heart of the city). The palace was built in 1887 as a winter garden for exotic plants for a 19th Century Exhibition dedicated to the Philippines. Designed by Ricardo Velazquez Bosco.
Exhibitions of modern art are regularly held inside the building which ranges from surrealistic metal sculptures to aviary shows.

I´ve always loved how the light reflects on it!
