THE DESIGN 

Feathers are a predominant symbol found in art, literature and mythology. In the Hellenistic period, peacocks pulled the chariot of the Greek goddess Hera. According to another myth, Zeus became interested in a woman named Io, and Hera had her hundred-eyed servant, Argus, guard Io. Zeus had Argus killed in order to free Io. According to the Roman author Ovid, Hera rewarded her watchman Argus by turning his hundred eyes into the eye-like images on the tail of the peacock. In fact, these eyes were at times rather like the so-called evil eye in Egyptian, Greek, and Roman mythology that could see everything.

We created these earrings in the shape of elongated feathers.
