Such great, peaceful energy in these earrings!!! These incredible, scenic stones are picture jaspers outta the Owyhee mountains in Oregon - in earthy colours of tan, brown, and umber. These stones feel like they hold all the magic of the beautiful country from which they came.
This earring design features the symbolism of the compass rose - an ode to navigation in the physical and metaphysical realms. I've soldered little reclaimed silver pebbles at each of the 4 cardinal directions, with a hinge at due north to create movement. This is some very meticulous work with a torch and these earrings represent a true labour of love. On the back side I've sawn out a pair of wild geese in flight, an invitation to open to the wisdom of the seasons + embrace our connection with the earth. Oxidized satin finish for an old world feel. Handcrafted from scratch with recycled + reclaimed sterling silver. Earrings come with sterling silver ear nuts.
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 complimentary polish pad.
