Celebrating the spiral journey-- these beautifully detailed earrings depict the Chartres cathedral maze. Crowned by amethyst stones, 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.
These earrings measure about 2" or 5cm including rose gold filled ear wires.
I designed these earrings to compliment a matching necklace, available here.
I also offer this set in silver plate, available here:
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. I hope a tiny fraction of that is captured in these earrings.
All my jewellery is made by hand by my partner Mike and myself in a converted 18th century naval school on the wild North coast of Scotland. All pieces come gift wrapped with lavender and Scottish heather.
