These handmade sterling silver earrings feature a southwestern styled spirit bear or heartline bear stamped into silver discs that are then hammered around the edges to add visual interest and play of light.
The meaning behind the arrow symbol was to represent the breath or lifeforce of the animal it was placed on or inside and is called a heartline or lifeline.
As explained on many websites:
“The heartline begins at the mouth where breath gives life and points to the soul, or spirit, where faith and inner strength preside.”
Perfect for a thoughtful and meaningful gift!
Note: All items are handmade, so there will be small differences between each one. This shows the hand of the artist, and it is those differences that earmark the work as being created by an individual artisan (me!) and not manufactured by the thousands and imported in droves.
All items will be smudged with sage before packing and shipping unless otherwise requested.
