Hi I'm Esme. Many of you know me as the original designer of Lunch at The Ritz Jewelry and Ritzy Couture. I'm delighted to say that I will now be carrying brand new and never worn Tabra jewelry designed by my dear and lifelong friend Tabra Tunoa.
Today, I'm offering a brand new and never worn Tabra 925 Silver Carved Carabao Bone Post Earrings NEW in Esme's Vault ND328. These earrings are One of a Kind! Very Unique!
Tabra’s bone carvings comes from "Carabao Bone". The carabao is the national animal of the Philippines - a domesticated animal - a water buffalo that is endemic in Southeast Asia. The carabao is in no danger of becoming extinct or endangered. Aside from helping the farmers plow the fields, they serve as transportation, food, and provide raw material for furniture and jewelry.
Each earring is approximately 1.0" Long by 0.75" Wide. Sterling Silver 925 with carved Carabao bone.

Tabra combines sacred symbols with semi-precious stones, hand-made beads and ancient materials to create Gypsy earrings, tribal pendants, primitive talismans, exotic bracelets and necklaces. Many of her pieces are one-of-a-kind or limited editions. Whether mystical and spiritual symbols, tribal motifs, shaman-influenced combinations or protective talismans, women worldwide find Tabra's designs both beautiful and powerful.
I met Tabra Tunoa in 1973 when we both started working at the same jewelry factory. When the factory closed soon after, we decided to go into a partnership so that we could both sell our jewelry on Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley California. Tabra had a small studio in her apartment, and I had one in mine. We would meet every morning and take turns pulling our shopping cart out to Telegraph Ave to set up shop on the street with other street artists.
It wasn't long before Tabra became a huge success. Travelling the world she inspired strong women everywhere to choose their magic and express themselves by wearing her fabulous and exotic jewelry. Her dear friends Amy Tan and Isabel Allende began wearing her jewelry on all their guest appearances and book signing tours. Tabra had become an in inspiration to all woman to have a voice and follow their dream.
