August pop up coming soon.
I call these Planet Earrings. They’re kinetic sculptures to adorn your ears. Lightweight, easy to wear, with a lovely feel and swing, Planet Earrings are sure to become a favorite pair.
A glass turquoise lentil bead with Picasso finish dangles from two copper hoops that spin and swing "orbiting"their turquoise planet. This design is suspended from a copper wire wrapped, fire polished crystal.
I love to top my earrings with my signature "sloppy knot". For me it's like leaving my thumbprint on every piece--a signature that says this piece was handcrafted, and that makes every single piece a one-of-a-kind original.
The earwire is an antiqued copper french hook. It’s lead and nickel free.
My materials are fair trade and ethically produced. The glass ornaments are made in cottage industry, family-owned factories. These artisan glass beads are created in small batches using techniques passed down within families, resulting in a product that is unique and of the highest quality.
Please note, every piece of Casa Kira jewelry is handcrafted and therefore will vary slightly from photos and from piece to piece.
MIX AND MATCH! Wear your Planet earrings with any of my asymmetrical Planet Necklaces. Match colors or contrast them!
*All jewelry comes in a gift box made from 100% recycled materials.
Summer is in full swing here in Tucson Arizona. We’ve already hit 100° and we all slow down and become somewhat nocturnal.
I am still here in the Casa Kira studio, designing and creating and enjoying the extra space that summer creates. As retail demand decreases somewhere at this time of year, It allows for creativity to flurrish.
Casa Kira Studio is moving to a new location in central Tucson. Stay tuned for updates. In the meantime: Save the date! Casa Kira moving sale Saturday August 26th.

This year I find myself mostly being thankful for the amazing people in my life who support me personally and help make my business thrive as well. I am thankful to my customers. The out-of-town folks who keep track of the new styles and order from all around the country and world. The Tucson People who visit the shops around town that carry Casa Kira and who come out to the Casa Kira Studio open houses. All of those people have helped make this dream a reality. The buyers in my stores who are willing to step out of the box, and try a different model of carrying locally handcrafted items to bring quality, ethics, and sustainability to customers
I am grateful to Margie R. The best graphic designer ever. Nancy G my girl Friday and assistant extraordinaire. Nancy F. For her gorgeous and intuitive photographs. Mose, Ellis, Mike, Peg, Brianna, Tasha, setting up, working the booth, breaking down, chauffeuring, and so many details that help me out immensely.
Chester Moon and El Arabe for reminding me to stop and smell the daisies and give them their carrots.
XOXO ❤️❤️❤️- Kira
Meet the neighbors.Chester Moon and El Arabe. Oh, and that cute mountain biker in the background is my kid, comming over after school. Loving the views from The Casa Kira Studio!
I love it when local businesses and non-for profit start to think about carrying local products. The Tucson Botanical Gardens has joined the list of local businesses doing just that. The Tucson the Botanical Garden's gift shop buyer, Christine, knows that she has a loyal following of Tucson residents as well as tourists from out of town, who want to have a uniquely Tucson experience. She is now catering to both kinds of customers by bringing in Casa Kira's, locally handcrafted jewelry into the gift shop. Christina and I are both excited to watch the shift take place. Will keep you posted as to which pieces go into her shop.
