Domed leaf earring, 1.5" tall, with delicate cutout veins, in sterling silver. Leaves have symbolic meaning in virtually every culture on earth. Forests are a refuge from danger, a source of food and ancient healing roots and berries. Trees are alive, mysterious and constantly changing. This design, by Paromita Rai, was inspired by the phrase ‘turning over a new leaf’ for when we experience changes for the better in our lives. Says Paromita, 'Every 24 hours, we are given a gift - the chance to begin a brand new day with a new attitude, to create beauty and to bring light, in our own lives, in the lives of people around us, and in the world'.
