These earrings are a part of my 'This Ancient Love' collection which is inspired by the words of a hymn by Carolyn McDade that speaks of the divine feminine. Here's the first verse: 

"Long before the night was born from darkness
Long before the dawn rolled unsteady from fire
Long before she wrapped her scarlet arms around the hills
there was a love
this ancient love was born." - Carolyn McDade

I have named the creations in this collection after a specific goddess or an aspect of the sacred feminine. These earrings are named after 'Isis' - an important Egyptian goddess. She is the goddess of motherhood with fierce qualities of protection and healing. She is also the goddess of marriage, life, moon and magic. Her story is intertwined with a story of loss and so she is known for being a presence to those who mourn and grieve. 
Perhaps she resonates with your life story?  

Wear these earrings to be reminded of the ancient love from which all life came. 
Wear these earrings to remember that your life is held in this divine presence.

These earrings are hand-fabricated using ancient silversmithing techniques in my home studio in Kitchener, Ontario. 

They feature purple rose cut silk ruby cabochons that measure 8mm x 11mm. 
The stones are set in fine silver. 
10 karat gold surround the sublime rubies. 
The remaining details are carefully crafted out of sterling silver. 

The earrings measure 1.3cm wide and 3.8cm long - measured from the top of the earring hook.
