At its heart, this magical design is all about balance- the harmony of the intuitive, feminine energies of the crescent moon, entwined with the active, masculine vitality of the pentacle. The pentacle is also seen as a symbol of Prosperity and Protection, as well as a representation of the Five Elements (Air, Water, Fire, Earth, and Spirit).
The Crescent Moon Pentacle Stud Earrings are made of nickel-free sterling silver, and measure only 1/4" in diameter. With nickel-free sterling silver posts, for pierced ears only. This design is copyrighted by artist Paul Borda.
Who designed these earrings? The design for these earrings is the creative work of the artisan Paul Borda. Paul works in various mediums, but typically, his creations start as wood carvings. This is a process that can take hundreds of hours, as he works to draw forth his vision from the block of wood. Once that is complete, he works with skilled jewelers who are able to translate his work into sterling silver.
Will my non-pagan family/boss/friends object if I wear these earrings? Only you can answer that for sure. If you are deep in the broom closet and and not planning on sharing your pagan beliefs with others, it can be difficult to find jewelry that is both meaningful and safe to wear. These earrings strike a great balance, as the pentacles are very subtle, and unlikely to be remarked on by anyone but fellow pagans.
