Initially inspired by the "a bird in the hand" proverb, but also has overtones of Frida Khalo style jewellery and Milagros.
A tiny hand holding a Paloma style bird, made from cast Pewter (lead free), both are 3D/double sided (the last photos shows the back of the earrings). The hand emerges from a black matte Lucite flower, reminiscent of a flouncy Gothic blouse. They are topped by a beautiful quality Zambian Amethyst bead.

✩Size (all measurements are approximate)✩
6.5cm (2.5 inches) from top of ear-wire to bottom
6mm Zambian Amethyst bead

✩Paloma Mythology, Legends, Lore and History✩
Paloma is a name derived from Latin "palumbus" which means Dove; a symbol of Peace.

✩Amethyst Mythology, Legends, Lore and History✩
Zambian Amethyst is known for its high quality, beautiful vivid purple colour and clarity.
*The Amethyst's meaning is spiritual growth and protection.
*These beautiful healing crystals are also known for bringing clarity of the mind to the owner. By wearing or using Amethyst crystals, you can become more in tune with your own feelings and get to know your inner self on a much deeper level. It is a gemstone which can bring you calmness, inner peace and is thought to heighten your natural intuition.
*Amethyst is renown for its ability to reduce addictive traits. The name amethyst is derived from the ancient Greek word “amethustos”, which translates to “not drunk”. In ancient times goblets made of amethyst or in the colour purple were thought to hinder inebriation.
*Amethyst is the stone of St. Valentine and of faithful lovers because St. Valentine was thought to have worn an Amethyst ring engraved with the image of Cupid.
"Amethyst is the Birthstone for February and the Zodiac stone for both Aquarius and Pisces.

✩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 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.

Jewellery: Care Instructions

Jewellery should be the last thing you put on the first thing you take off.
Always avoid getting hair products, perfume or chemicals (chemicals can include household cleaning products, some foods such as Lemons or vinegar)
General Advice:
Any metal be-it Sterling Silver, base metals or plated alloys can become dull or tarnished. As a general rule don't get it wet, if you do, dry and polish with a soft cloth. If it goes dull or tarnished, a gentle polish with a non-abrasive Silver cloth will bring it's lustre back. Gems or beads can be wiped with a slightly damp cloth to restore their original lustre.
Certain precious or semi-precious stone may require special care, I will include the information in the items full description or care leaflet.
