The Woodland Twig Hoops are an organic pair of entwined twig earrings.
They are inspired by branches of winter Blackthorn - The dark mother of the woods.
The ‘oxidised finish’ really accentuates the organic details of the silver twigs for an earthy style (see image 1-8).
If you prefer a lighter finish on the silver, you can choose the ‘polished’ option (see image 9-11).
Blackthorn is known as one of the faery trees, along with Hawthorn and Rowan. Blackthorn exudes magic and is a worthy talisman for those seeking strength to overcome obstacles, protection, fate and hope for the future.
In Celtic mythology the Blackthorn is typically associated with the dark side of the year, with its prickly dark thorns and sour sloe berries that only ripen after surviving the first frost. It is believed to be protected by 'moon fairies' and that witches use its dark enchanting branches to make wands and potions.
Blackthorn resembles the balance of the light and dark in life, I hope this collection gives the wearer courage by reminding them that the darkness is only temporary.
