Our Half Wheel Earrings fabricated in Sterling then cast in small batches, are set with luminous gemstones adding a focal pop of color. Inspired by the beauty found in the metalwork embedded in the streets of New York City, these earrings speak to T and Brie's innovative design choices illuminating the imperfect beauty that can be found all around us.
Held to the Ear with Sterling Posts and large Sterling backs, these unique and dramatic Earrings will radiate from the face like rays of metallic sunshine. Here shown with Garnet Cabochons, choose your gemstone to be set creating a more personal adornment. Please reach out with any gemstone special requests as we will try to assist.
Size: Sterling Half Wheels are approximately 1 1/4" in length and 3/4" at their widest point. The gemstones are approximately 5mm in diameter. We dip our Silver in a natural patina imbuing the work with a dark romanticism and then hand-finish them creating a matte luster that is at once contemporary, yet evocative of another era, time or place.
The wheel is symbolically similar to the circle with the additional quality of movement. The mythic circle of totality, with it's hub, or eye, the seed germinating center, the spokes representing creative rotation. The beauty of the spokes or rays emanating from a center point speak to the wheel of life, a symbol used by ancient cultures dividing the cosmic whole, be it phases of the moon, the four seasons, time and space, continuous renewal. A focus on this dynamic totality can bring form and balance to a community's existence or for the individual, this practice in life can lead to calm and peacefulness.
