Celebrate the centre of all beauty and creativity, the seat of the soul; celebrate love itself with these gorgeous hand-crafted circle earrings. These earrings tell of the Red Thread, a legend of destined souls - two spirits who are intended to meet, lifetime after lifetime, beyond time and space. They are connected by a thin, sometimes invisible, red thread. This red thread can be twisted, tangled and stretched, but it can never be broken. This is the beauty of destined souls! Traditionally, destined souls are those intended by the gods to be married. In a more contemporary sense, destined souls may be in relationships other than romantic ones - sisters, siblings, friends and family.
These lovely matching earrings are made from 100% recycled silver, each one hand formed into an overlapping circle and joined with woven strands of recycled copper wire. The colour red is a sacred and special one - for Maori of Aotearoa, New Zealand it represents the connection with our mighty mother earth, Papatuanuku. In this way these pieces not only represent destined souls, but also our intimate relationship and connection with the earth - a connection that cannot ever be broken.
About this collection: THE LOVER
Inside the heart of every soul lies a tender unopened flower. This flower is the source of all creativity, all divinity and all love. It will bloom when it is treated with kindness, respect and when it is listened to openly and with trust.
I believe in the beauty of all these flowers and I commit to helping them to grow and bloom every single day, beginning with the flower that sits within my own heart. I believe in the connection of destined souls.
I understand that we are all connected and that the essence of this connection is in love - that love is the most important foundation upon which all relationships are built. Love itself can come in many forms, both constructive and destructive, and I seek to follow a pathway of love that encourages growth, expansion and honors the passion within each of us.
I am the LOVER
