These earrings are inspired by the Festival de los Patios Cordobeses, a UNESCO World Heritage Listed annual festival in May when locals open up their colourful courtyards to the public. Due to the hot, dry Cordoban climate, the Romans and later the Muslims, designed their homes to centre around an inner courtyard, usually with a fountain and often a well to collect rainwater to water their plants draping down the walls. Today this vibrant festival flows out of the courtyards and onto the streets and is enjoyed by everbody, gardener or not.
