'This Ancient Love' Collection is inspired by the words of hymn by Carolyn McDade:
"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.
Long before the grass spotted green the bare hillside
Long before a wing unfolded to wind
Long before she wrapped her long blue arms around the sea
there was a love
this ancient love was born. 
Long before a chain was forged from the hillside
Long before a voice uttered freedom's cry
Long before she wrapped her bleeding arms around a child
there was a love
this ancient love was born. 
Wakeful are our nights and slumbers our morning
Stubborn is the grass sowing green wounded hills
As we wrap our healing arms to hold
what her arms held
this ancient love
this aching love 
rolls on." 
- Carolyn McDade

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 embrace. 

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

They feature black onyx rose cut cabochons that are 4mm in diameter. 
and set in fine silver. 
A dainty ring of 10 karat gold surrounds the stones. 
The remaining details are carefully crafted out of sterling silver. 

The earrings measure 1.1cm in diameter.
