In the underworld, we discover ourselves. We confront that which we’d rather ignore, examine the parts of us that we’ve pushed into the shadows, and emerge stronger and more whole for having done so. Persephone, who was forced into the underworld against her will and yet emerged as Queen, paved this path for us so that we may travel willingly down to this realm of inner work and arise as better rulers of ourselves. The Descent of Persephone Earrings are inspired by these lessons from Persephone’s myth. Two daggers of fiery petrified palm root capture the essence of the underworld, and are crowned by juicy red garnets so reminiscent of the pomegranate seeds that sealed Persephone’s fate, set in 14k gold-filled bezels. 14k gold-filled crescent moons flank each garnet, tying in the magic inherent in cycles, the necessity of waxing and waning, and the power of the divine feminine. Each earring weighs approximately 3/4 of an ounce (slightly less than the weight of 4 US quarters). 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.
