Naturally shed, small deer antler points are set in sterling silver bezels embellished with a feather motif, and accented with a small turquoise polished cabochon. Each antler tip is different, and I have not polished them; the antlers show natural wear and tear, unique characteristics that indicate the life activity of a wild deer. Sterling silver ear wires.
Measurements: Earrings are approximately 3/8″ wide by 2-1/4″ long including ear wires.
Antler: A sacred animal with the spirit of gentleness and softness, a messenger, a shaman; maize and femininity personified. Like a crown, the antlers grow beyond its body, bringing it closer to the sky and making it sacred. In many cultures, the deer is a symbol of spiritual authority. The usual correspondences for the antler are Masculine, Solar and the elements of Fire and Earth. Because deer shed and regrow their antlers, the antler has long been tied to the annual death and resurrection of the sun. The antlered stag represents wisdom, nobility, protection, and the cycle of death and rebirth.
Turquoise: Turquoise represents protection, serenity, balance and strength. It brings clarity, induces wisdom, attracts friendships, luck and happiness. Good for open communication, creativity, serenity, spiritual bonding. Truly reflects the individual carrying or holding it. Tunes into the energies of the person and transmits them back into the world. Can also assist in getting more in tune with others. A popular stone with creative problem solvers. Meant for those who wish to communicate. Beneficial for the entire body.
