Between Times Earrings ✦ Natural Baltic Amber ✦ Bealtaine Collection

Regular price $ 93.00

From sundown on April 30th to sundown on May 1st marks the Celtic fire festival of Bealtaine {Irish, pronounced bee-all-tinneh or bel-tinneh depending on region, anglicized to Beltane}. The rituals tied to this day are meant to welcome the summer, and involve protective charms, setting intentions, taking stock of resources, fertility celebrations, feasting, fortune telling and other forms of divination, and sun and fire worship. One of the most well known Bealtaine rituals involves lighting giant bonfires which both people and cattle would walk between, with the smoke bestowing powers of protection upon them. On this day, flowers, bright colors, and general merriment take over as the earth resumes its verdant dance once more. Much like its counterpart of Samhain, Bealtaine is a time between times, when the barrier that separates this world from the otherworld is at its thinnest. I created these earrings as a Bealtaine offering. Drops of natural Baltic amber glow like the sun below sterling crescent moons, a simplistic rendering of the liminal nature of Bealtaine, and a reminder that from the dark comes the light. These lightweight and striking earrings were darkened and sanded to highlight the details, and they come with standard sterling backs.
