patina open heart shepherd hook earrings
Each heart earring is cast in sterling silver and measures 1/2" (1.25 cm) in diameter. Black patina is used to accent the inside of the textured heart and the outside edge is polished to a high shine. The earring hooks are hand crafted from sterling silver wire and the entire earring is approximately 1" (2.5 cm) long.
The Open Hearts are intended to be worn for ones self or for another, sharing with everyone who sees it, the reminder of love and openness, light, and compassion for each individual and the world. The coarse texture on one side of the heart represents all the experience, and scars of our hearts, yet we continue to keep space inside. The hearts have depth and shape elements representing all our experience and diversity, while striving for peace and unity.
