Gold “Basket” Earring

Byzantine, 6th century, made in Northern France (2.5 x 1.5 cm)

Opus interrasile was a technique used by goldsmiths to make elegant jewelry from the 200s through the 600s. Designs were traced onto sheets of gold; the background was punched with holes of various sizes to highlight the pattern; and fine details were then worked on the surface. The patterns formed by piercing the metal ground encouraged the play of light and shadow across an object’s surface.

Woo, my first mesh edit CC for the sims 4. As far as I can find, there is only one other cartilage earring floating around for ts4. So here, have another! I plan on making others such as fancier ones or maybe even industrial piercings? Let me know if you are interested and I’ll do it :D

There is no way (that I know of) that I can anchor it to the ear itself, so unfortunately it does not move with the ear when resizing/moving the ear itself. It is best suited for the smallest ears, however there is some room to move before it looks awkward. Hope you enjoy!

I’d love to see if you use this in your game. Likes/reblogs would mean the world to me <3 Feel free to do recolours as long as the mesh isn’t distributed, and make sure to tag me!
