Exquisitely detailed 2 sided pewter owl earrings, crowned with a Mother of Pearl crescent moon and Silver plated findings. The owls have front and back designs (as shown in the photos). I find owls fascinating and beautiful creatures, and even though I live in a very urban area, I'm lucky enough to have owls living in the area, rarely seeing them, but hearing them much more often.

✩Owl Mythology✩
*In Ancient Greek mythology the Owl was a creature sacred to Athena, Goddess of the night who represented wisdom. Athena, the Greek Goddess of Wisdom had a companion Owl on her shoulder, which revealed unseen truths to her. Owl had the ability to light up Athena's blind side, enabling her to speak the whole truth, as opposed to only a half truth.
*The Ainu in Japan trust the Owl because it gives them notice of evil approaching. They revere the Owl, and believe it mediates between the Gods and men.
*The bird features prominently Celtic folklore where it is considered both to be sacred and to have magical powers, again because of its abilities to see in the dark and fly noiselessly through the skies.
*The Owl is the bird of mystical wisdom and ancient knowledge of the powers of the moon. With wide-open, all-seeing eyes, Owl looks upon reality without distortion and acknowledges it, yet is aware that with ancient magical and spiritual knowledge, he or she can make changes.

✩Variations/findings✩
These earrings come with very secure Silver plated lever back findings (as pictured) which are suitable for pierced ears.
But can be replaced (free of charge) with:
*large kidney wires, suitable for wearing though gauged tunnels, or simply if you prefer a longer earring (this will add approximately 3cm to the overall length).

For a small extra charge, I can replace the current ear-wires with:
*non-pierced/clip-on findings
*Solid 925 Sterling Silver ear-wires, in a “fish/shepherds hook” design.
*Solid Titanium in a “fish/shepherds hook” style.
Titanium is physiologically inert and thus hypo-allergenic. For this reason, Titanium is found in many internal medical devices. Titanium’s natural colour is a silvery grey. It can can also be electrically heated and anodised, resulting in a wide array of colours using a process known as reactive metal anodising, which is useful in making jewellery. Titanium is strong, lightweight and highly bio-compatible. Anodising creates a thin oxide layer which is just as bio-compatible as polished titanium. There are no other materials added and there is no plating or painting. Titanium is an excellent choice for anyone with sensitive skin, especially for those allergic to nickel, silver or gold.

Please choose the ear finding from the drop down menu.

Meet Mephisto the measuring hand, he will help show you the rough scale of the jewellery. The hand is exactly the same size as my own hand (I’m an average UK ladies size 7 glove).
