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 symbol of African cosmologies, as well as a representation of the wheel of the year so central to European indigenous spiritual systems.
