Elfried Somberg

Unusual Earrings. Hang In There

Long Beach, CA

ILLUZIO earrings are unique. The earrings don't require piercing, instead they HOOK inside the lower part of the ear-well, much like how a ring on a finger is secured by a knuckle.

Elfried Somberg was born and raised in the Netherlands, bringing to her craft a European flair. The combination of European and American accents result in uniquely feminine designs evident in her creations. Her designs are robust yet not revealing, leaving an element of discovery in the eye of the beholder. She incorporates elegance and fun into her designs, without overwhelming the stage. Caslon, a Giant Schnauzer, is her devoted, wise, and far too clever companion.

ILLUZIO earrings are unique. More the result of a creative accident than a planned strategy they are so unique they were granted a utility patent, a rarity for jewelry. The earrings don’t require piercing, instead they HOOK inside the lower part of the ear-well, much like how a ring on a finger is secured by a knuckle.

ILLUZIO earrings come in a right and left earring that forms with your face and compliments the shape of your ear. 25 years ago we thought these would just be interesting frames for pierced earrings. Little did we know how many people actually would like to not have to use a pierced earring. So we started decorating them and now we have a wonderful and ever changing array of designs, including 3 sizes of the original unadorned design.
