Celebrating the spiral journey-- these beautifully detailed ear weights are designed for stretched piercings. They depict the Chartres cathedral maze in copper plated pewter. They double-sided discs hang from hand forged copper hoops in my "little cobra" shape and are 1.6mm or 14g thick. They can be worn on their own or through tunnels. These earrings are a beautiful reminder that there are no wrong turns in life, and though the path may twist and double back, we walk it in love and trust.
The Chartres labyrinth dates from the 13th century and is the best preserved example of a medieval labyrinth, but it is no doubt an echo of an earlier pagan symbol. Many years ago I had the luck of being in Chartres when the labyrinth was open to pilgrims. Walking it like so many had for hundreds of years before me (some on their knees!) I was filled with wonder.
These ear weights measure about 2" or 5cm long, and weigh 7g each.
