Golden Dreams Hoops
What could be a better botanical to celebrate the golden season than goldenrod? The warm, yellow blossoms of this wonderful herb light up the land all across the northern hemisphere in late summer + early fall, like beams of joyful sunshine.
In the words of Robin Wall Kimmerer “if a fountain could jet bouquets of chrome yellow in dazzling arches of chrysanthemum fireworks, that would be Canada goldenrod. Each three-foot stem is a geyser of tiny gold daisies, ladylike in miniature, exuberant en masse”.
These hoop earrings are made with recycled sterling silver and feature a sturdy, double-layered hand-sawn goldenrod on each hoop earring, as well as a warm, golden, rosecut citrine. These citrines change color depending on the light - pale yellow in bright light, warm mustard gold in darker light. They hang from hand-forged sterling silver french ear wires and come with sterling silver ear nuts. Oxidized satin finish for an old world feel.
All handcrafted using traditional silversmithing techniques, with my own two hands and a lot of heart and soul. Each North Star Silver order comes lovingly packaged and ready for gift-giving. I use GOTS-certified organic cotton jewelry bags and/or 100% post consumer recycled kraft jewelry boxes with natural cotton filling. All orders come with a jewelry care card.
