These statement earrings were created as an ode to Persephone and to her yearly descent into the underworld. They are meant to harness her strength in the face of darkness, and her ability to nourish equally the dualities of her roles as Queen of the Underworld and goddess of Spring. Drops of petrified wood, so reminiscent of the fiery underworld, sit crowned by handmade stylized pomegranates. Upon the fruit, two natural garnets, so reminiscent of pomegranate seeds, glow in solid 14k gold settings. Sterling crescent moons flank the pomegranates, creating a triple moon formation. These are meant to serve the wearer as protective talismans through difficult circumstances, and as reminders of one’s own inherent power. These talismans for journeys both inward and outward have been darkened and selectively polished to echo the mood of the myth. My maker's mark and .925 for sterling adorn the back of each earring.
