✩Artemis and the Moon Mythology, Legends, Lore and History✩
Artemis, one of the most widely venerated of the Ancient Greek deities. In the classical period of Greek mythology, Artemis was often described as the daughter of Zeus and Leto, and the twin sister of Apollo. She was the Hellenic goddess of the hunt, wild animals, wilderness, childbirth, virginity, the moon and protector of young girls, bringing and relieving disease in women; she often was depicted as a huntress carrying a bow and arrows. The deer and the cypress were sacred to her. In later Hellenistic times, she even assumed the ancient role of Eileithyia in aiding childbirth.

✩Pentagram and Pentacle Mythology, Legends, Lore and History✩
The first known uses of the Pentagram are found in Mesopotamian writings dating to about 3000 BC. To earth-centred religions throughout history as well as to many Pagans, it represents the feminine spirit or force, the cosmos or a spiritualism Mother Earth, and a sacred space. The five-pointed star is representative of the four primal elements earth, air, fire and water, and traditionally a fifth, spirit. The circle around a Pentagram is a symbol of unity, wholeness, infinity, the Goddess, and protection. The circle binds them together to create life.

✩Triskele Mythology, Legends, Lore and History✩
The Triskele, although it appears in many places and periods, it is especially characteristic of the La Tène culture of the European Iron Age. The Triskelion symbol appears in many early cultures, including west’s earliest known first astronomical calendar in Ireland at the famous megalithic tomb of Newgrange built around 3200 BC, Mycenaean vessels, on coinage in Lycia and Pamphylia (at Aspendos, 370–333 BC) and Pisidia. It appears as a heraldic emblem on warriors’ shields depicted on Greek pottery. In more recent time it has come to represent the Triple Goddess.

✩Variations/findings✩
These earrings come with very secure Silver plated lever back findings (as pictured) which are suitable for pierced ears.
But can be replaced (free of charge) with:
*non-pierced/clip-on findings
*large kidney wires, suitable for wearing though gauged tunnels, or if you prefer a longer earring (this will add approximately 3cm to the overall length).

For a small extra charge, I can replace the current ear-wires with:
*Solid 925 Sterling Silver ear-wires, in a “fish/shepherds hook” design.
*Solid Titanium in a “fish/shepherds hook” style.
Titanium is physiologically inert and thus hypo-allergenic. For this reason, Titanium is found in many internal medical devices. Titanium’s natural colour is a silvery grey. It can can also be electrically heated and anodised, resulting in a wide array of colours using a process known as reactive metal anodising, which is useful in making jewellery. Titanium is strong, lightweight and highly bio-compatible. Anodising creates a thin oxide layer which is just as bio-compatible as polished titanium. There are no other materials added and there is no plating or painting. Titanium is an excellent choice for anyone with sensitive skin, especially for those allergic to nickel, or the metals added to 925 Silver or 9ct Gold.

Please choose the ear finding from the drop down menu.
