The Scorpion + Turquoise Hoops
Upon request I have included a few pairs of Scorpion Hoops for standard ears!
To honor the enchantment of the desert I’ve hand fabricated a large hoop earring out of 10g sterling silver, but with an 18g wire hook closure to be worn in standard piercings, or through tunnels. Two of the most incredible, multi colored inclusion, layered pieces of Kingman Turquoise - that I have picked up directly from the mine this winter, have been rest in serrated bezels, with a roped border, framed on either side by intricate, indiviually hand "cast" fine silver scorpions, from scorpions a friend found in nature and gifted me. ✨
The hoops have a diameter of roughly 2 5/8", and weigh roughly .78 oz (or roughly about 22.2 g) each. Please make sure this weight is comfortable for your ears ahead of purchase - thank you!
>>> Scorpions are another powerful totem. They carry many of the same strengths and messages as a snake. They are patient, intutive, fierce when threatened with danger, as well as good with boundaries and controlling the energy they expel, they also have the ability to shed their skin and emerge new after much growth. Along with these qualities, I believe carrying a scorpion talisman is a good reminder of focusing on what you carry, and making sure to release old habits and behaviors that no longer deserve to come on your journey. <<<
