:: Moon Bird ::
Beautiful Moon Birds an ancient indigenous design are rendered in rustic copper and paired with natural Nacozari Turquoise nuggets. Full of strength and spirit the Moon Birds sway from elegant artisan oxidized Sterling Silver ear wires forged on my anvil of Pacific Ocean rock. These earrings are graceful with a slight comfortable weight as they soar against your neck.
Fabricated entirely by hand from scratch and built to last for the next seven generations and beyond. Over time the copper will have a rosy warmth that will push through and bloom on the surface, they are currently sealed with microcrystalline wax to preserve their oxidized finish. Length is 3 inches from the top of the sterling silver ear wires. The artisan ear wires have been torched, hammered, and hand oxidized to a lovely stormy grey.
Turquoise is a sacred stone to many indigenous nations of North America. To the people the Earth is alive and all things (no matter how small or seemingly inanimate) are precious. Believed to be a fallen "sky stone" and a gift from the Grandfather sky that was hidden within the Earth Mother, Turquoise represents life and has been placed in sacred medicine bundles for its healing powers. Revered for its beauty and spiritual meaning, it is cherished as a stone of sky, water, good fortune, health, protection and long life. I am personally never without Turquoise whether day or night, sleeping or awake as I was taught by an elder to wear this crystal to help shield and protect my family and loved ones.
* This listing is for one pair of Turquoise 'Moon Bird' earrings only, the last photo shows the Labradorite crystal option as an example of size and scale.
These earrings will come beautifully gift wrapped ready to be gifted either as a treat for yourself or another, and are handmade to order just for you from the Wildthorne studio in the Santa Cruz mountains. Please visit my Customer Reviews page to get a feel for what I do.
Care Instructions: I recommend that these earrings be gently wiped down with a soft damp cloth and blotted to dry. When not being worn I also recommend that you store your earrings in their original box they were sent in, or a soft black cloth bag to keep out interference from unwanted energies. These earrings should be charged once a month in full moonlight to re-energize and absorb the light and illumination from the moon.
** As the crystals in these earrings are natural there will be slight variations in colors and surface textures. Also any lines or marks in the crystal are not cracks but are natural inclusions, and are a part of the patterning within the stone. This showcases the crystal's inherent beauty as minerals come from the Earth, and are not man made.
*** Colors of crystals and beads may vary depending on your computer or device screen settings. All of my jewelry is photographed in natural daylight. ***
