A fun twist to the classic hoops, La Casa Azul Hoops are actually an homage to Frida Kahlo, her love for flowers, and her infamous garden La Casa Azul - the Blue House. Frida would spend her mornings picking flowers and putting them in her hair which became her iconic look.
The intention behind these earrings goes beyond just the aesthetic of flowers. She often painted flowers and used it to symbolize fertility and death, old themes in the native Mexican tradition.
"I paint flowers so that they will not die” - Frida Kahlo
The earrings are a vessel for memories dear to your heart; for you to hold onto and carry around. The flowers may wither but the vessel and memories last.
