I now have two pairs of earrings in the shop, and will be adding a whole bunch more soon! (As they’re a lot of fun to make.) For today, I thought I would showcase the ones I have listed right now.
Queen Bee: Bees are traditionally associated with immortality and resurrection, in addition to endurance, energy, fertility, and sexuality. Through their connection with Apollon and Delphi, they also have a link to prophecy and oracular work, and other deities linked to bees include Artemis, Demeter, and the Egyptian sun god Ra. These delicate, lightweight earrings would be a wonderful stealth talisman to wear for any of these deities, for Bee herself, or simply as a way of declaring yourself to be the “Queen Bee” of your own hive.
A black oxidized brass bee dangles from each earring, adorned by a faceted black onyx bead, an electroplated topaz/smoky blue Czech glass crystal rondell, and an electroplated hematite glass crystal spacer, on sleek black brass ear wires. The length is about 1 3/4 inches, including the ear wires.
Black onyx is a soothing and comforting stone which can help alleviate fears and worries and promote self-control.
Raven: Wear Odin’s raven’s in your ears! A black oxidized brass raven in flight dangles from each earring, adorned by a genuine lapis lazuli bead, a shiny black Czech glass crystal, and a half-electroplated metallic silver Czech glass crystal spacer, on sleek black brass ear wires. The length is about 2 inches, including the ear wires.
Revered and treasured since ancient Egypt, lapis lazuli is a deeply spiritual stone, and aids in all intellectual pursuits. It stimulates the desire for knowledge, truth and understanding, enhances learning, and is excellent as an aid to memory.
Each of these pairs is only $20, making them a nice way to treat yourself to something special!
