Tiny Artemis Earrings with Aquamarine
NEW TINY VERSION: FOR MY BIRTHSTONE COLLECTION! "Pisces/Aquamarine" (Feb 19~March 20)
My Artemis collection was inspired by the Greek Goddess of hunting, the wilderness and wild animals! She was the Greek Goddess of wild animals, the hunt, vegetation and of chastity and childbirth. Her character and function varied greatly from place to place but behind all forms lay the goddess of wild nature who danced, usually accompanied by nymphs in mountains, forests, and marshes.
Artemis is most often depicted with a hunting bow. Equal parts feminine and badass warrior, my design for the Artemis earrings and necklaces features a hammered brass curved "bow", with Aquamarines in line forming the "string".
Energy-wise, the Aquamarine is ruled by the Moon and is infused with yin or feminine energy. Because of its flowing, peaceful energy, Aquamarine has a strong ability to help move, protect and purify your own energy and thus aid emotional healing as well as deepen meditative states. Its energy can feel like splashes of fresh ocean water—playful and a bit mischievous, too!
The width of the "string" of Aquamarine is 3/4" wide, the "bow" 7/8" wide x 1 1/8" tall. These hang 3 1/8" from the sterling silver earwires to the bottoms of the silver chains.
