Man suffers only because he takes seriously what the gods made for fun. Alan Watts
These earrings are shaped like pinwheel toys, tiny reminders of the whimsical mystery of this human experience.
From the small spin of a child's toy to a distant pinwheel galaxy made up of trillion stars, let these earrings remind you of the joy available in each moment.
-Multi-tone brass, with color accents created with high heat rather than paint or dye
The alchemical Brass Signature line, handmade by artisans in coastal South Africa, features a unique heat based process that allows for coloration and patterns to be created without dyes or chemicals. Not only is the line designed to reduce the release of toxins into the environment so often used in the jewelry making process, brass is known for its metaphysical healing properties as an energetic shield, to support the immune system and facilitate personal courage.
Created by local fair trade organization Brass Images, the line’s success allows for the training and hiring of artists from the local community, who contribute to designs and fabrication, providing sustainable income in an area that often lacks equal employment opportunities.
