She emerged from the waves.
That night the beach was deserted and the moonshine was covering the water with a silver cloak. The white foam on the waves was gleaming and as the wave returned back to the sea a mermaid emerged from the moist sand and so I began to chant this song for her.
“Sobre a lua prateada eu chamo o nome seu Janaína,
Odociaba Minha-mãe Odoyá!
Alodê Odociaba Abro minha alma para receber sua compaixão
Abro meus olhos para receber sua formosura
Abro meu coração para receber seu canto de paz,
e assim como eu queria te encontrar,
eu mesmo me refleti na beira do mar,
que do meu coração é a morada certa.
Agora estou suavemente aberta
Mae d’aguas cristalina
encantada me illumina”
“Under the silver moon I call your name
Janaína, Alodê, Odofiaba Minha-mãe Odoyá!
I open my soul to receive your compassion
I open my soul to receive your beauty
I open my soul to receive your song
and just as I wanted to find you
I discovered my self on this sea shore,
the sure dwelling of my heart
and now I am gently open
Mother of the crystalline waters
enchanted she illuminates me”
This pair of drop earrings truly is one of a kind. The main body of the earring is crafted with love and intention using recycled, Fairtrade or SMO 18ct yellow gold. The flowers are created using vintage micro glass beads of different colours and each is an offering to the Orixá Yemanjá, a deity of the Umbanda tradition that resides on the white foam of the ocean waves. All gold beads used are being hand cut by my self and they all are solid 18ct yellow gold.
Each earring, stem, flower, petal is the result of my craft and dedication.
This is a limited collection and only 30 of these flowers are available. When you purchase a pair, it will be sent to you with a copy of the words and poem that I wrote, as an invocation of the spirit of Yemanjá in your life. The limited edition earrings’ number will appear together with the writing that comes with the piece and will be directly signed by my self.
The flower earrings come with their own hand made vases, made by Sicilian artist Luigia Pappalardo and they will allow for the earrings to be used as an ornamental and devotional object when not worn.
A truly personal piece, the ideal present for someone very special in your life. Whether that special someone is your self or someone else that touches your heart deeply, this is the gift that shows your full appreciation.
The earrings are made in:
The body of the earrings: Fairtrade 18ct yellow gold/SMO 18ct yellow gold/recycled 18ct yellow gold
