💍Jewelry to make you smile ear to ear 💍
For it was not into my ear you whispered, but my heart... thank you for that, dearest Judy Garland.
The part of people we commune with most is their face. A shining beacon of smiles and sorrow, freckles and dimples, dark and light skin, shapes and sizes galore. Of all the facial features, my whole heart melts for the delicacy and enchantment of the most ignored - ears.
They are prime real estate for showcasing our personalities. They can show off our gaudy bawdiness or display an elegant shyness. We use them to enhance a hairstyle or outfit, or even to lengthen our face shape, as if by magic.
As I sit here writing on the indigenous lands of the Southern and Mountain Ute tribes, my mind wanders to the importance of earrings in Native American cultures. For millennia, each of these communities has had their own style and artistry to make earrings. Patterns and colors that symbolize each of their unique histories and strengths. Each represents different daily practices, from fishing and hunting, to prayer and healing.
Like all who came before me, who looked into the night sky and saw constellations in communion, I am inspired by the rich history of the land we exist on and those who cultivated it. My dearest hope is that through my earrings, you feel closer to your own daily rituals and communities. Recognize the absolute perfection of your ears, and let them hear you rejoice.
You have a beauty way about you. xo
