These sterling silver earrings are hand-crafted into half domes.
This series was first inspired by Hyemeyohsts Storm’s teaching on the Medicine Wheel. The medicine wheel comes to us from the traditions of the Plains People. Its design marks the four directions and the wholeness of our being. The many points that make up the circle remind us of both the diversity within ourselves and among each other. When adorned with these earrings, we welcome & honor all aspects of ourselves and those of others.
But the medicine wheel is not the only spiritual tool that utilized the circle and cross. This is also a sign for the crossroads in African spiritualities, as well as a symbol for the wheel of the year so central to European indigenous spiritual systems. Following this theme, I’ve been asked to create these earring with the Andean symbol of the Chakana, or what is sometimes called the Incan Cross. That style will be coming soon.
May you be a good mirror for the people who surround you.
