Here are just a couple of examples of goddess earrings I've made over the last couple of years.
These earrings, with Kristi's richly textured shield-shaped components, have an ancient, feminine, Tribal Goddess feel to them. I also had a lot of fun playing with fiber. (Lampies are by Magdalena Ruiz.)
These earrings with tapestry-textured copper points are also tribal in tone, but they have a more modern and casual spirit, mostly because of Julie Sontag's colorful, fun enameled lampies.
They're graceful and shapely and beautiful--and of course I bought a set of them. When they arrived and I had a chance to run my fingers over them, I knew what I wanted to make and what goddess I wanted to celebrate: Aurora, the goddess of the dawn. This goddess offers dawn's hopeful, renewing energy and is known for the elements of love, joy, beauty, health, and fertility.

Shapely, graceful, lovely...the Bringer of the Dawn.
May you all have a wonderful dawn, no matter what time of day (or night) you're reading this. I'll see you next time!
