I am constantly on the lookout for positive references to darkness. 
I am absolutely in love with these words by John O’Donohue:  

“On a farm you learn to respect nature, particularly for the wisdom of its dark underworld. When you sow things in the spring, you commit them to the darkness of the soil. The soil does its own work. It is destructive to interfere with the rhythm and wisdom of its darkness. ...
It is wise to allow the soul to carry on its secret work in the night side of your life."
- John O’Donohue from Anam Cara, page 121-122

These earrings feature hollow forms that I created by fusing two sterling silver domes together. No solder. Just the flame and a spirit of acceptance.
They are raw, sublime and numinous.

The cabochon stones are rose cut black onyx. 
They measure 10mm x 8mm and are set in fine silver. 

The earrings measure 4.3cm long (measured from the top of the earring hook).

The jump rings are 10 karat gold. 

These are light and elegant with a bit of a classy feel that shows through a lot of my work.
