Spiral Healers Hand Earrings, Mykonos Aqua Lampwork Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

The meaningful healer’s hand with a spiral in the palm used in the SPIRAL HANDS handmade earrings is believed to be a powerful symbol of protection and healing.  Sometimes called the “shaman’s hand,” Native Americans in the Southwest decorated canyon walls, boulders and the insides of caves with the spiral hand symbol. It is still in use today in their beautiful art, sacred ceremonies and daily life, especially by the Hopi and Navajo.  The small, two-sided spiral healer’s hand charms used in the one of a kind earrings are copper over pewter and were made on the island of Mykonos in Greece by artisans. The rustic hands were given an aqua turquoise patina to add a look of ageless beauty to them.  The charms hang as mirror images and, since they are two-sided, they look fabulous from any angle when the petite earrings are worn.  
 
To perfectly complement the turquoise patina of the spiral healer’s hands, unique artisan handmade lampwork beads were wire wrapped above each.  The lampwork beads started out as clear glass but then aqua glass frit was added to produce a multitude of spots all over the beads. The translucent lampwork beads positively glow!  Stacked above each lampwork bead is a copper disc spacer and two types of Czech glass beads. The first is a glass disc in a lovely translucent pink rose color. A metallic silver Picasso finish adds visual interest and loosely mimics the spots on the lampwork beads.  Above the discs can be found a petite ridged melon beads in a turquoise blue green color. An earthy metallic brick red and silver Picasso finish was added to “age” the beads. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the SPIRAL HANDS earrings were created for the woman who loves symbolic jewelry and loves to wear smaller earrings.

The healer’s hand is believed to be a powerful symbol of protection and healing.  Spirals can be found worldwide and are known as the symbol for eternity or for the path of our existence on earth.  Even though man made, glass and crystals carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication. Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.  Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.
