Twig Rings - Pre-Order - Size 4-6.5
Twig rings, cast from the real deal! In my studies in zen and mindfulness, one thing I’ve deeply appreciated, has been the peace that comes when you focus completely on one thing - one task, one detail, one in breath, one out breath. At an ashram I visited, they called this element ether - tapping into the ethereal. Closing your eyes and leaning into the breeze, being completely absorbed in this moment, now. In zen, this is called mindfulness. When you look deeply, you see all things in the universe are contained in each single thing, the “cosmos in a teacup”. In making these twig rings, cast from real organic twigs, I observed the whole forest and it’s timeless story, in each little detail - the little knots, lenticels, patterns in the bark, bud scars, the coming and going of the seasons, the endless struggle for existence - the whole universe, right there in a twig, and right there inside me with each in breath and out breath. Oxidized satin finish for an old world feel.
**NB: Due to the size of the casting, these are only available in sizes 4 to 6.5, at 1/2 size increments. Please leave a note at checkout or send me an email via the contact form to let me know what size you'd like yours**
PLEASE NOTE: This is a pre-order item, meaning that I will make these earrings just for you, from scratch. Please allow up to 4-6 weeks production time before your hoops are shipped.
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 care.
