These beautiful Bowen Flower Stud earrings are made of Cherry wood and sterling silver findings. The design is based on a traditional Finnish tablet weaving pattern - these motifs have survived through time, over a thousand years.
This design comes from a well-known symbol, the Bowen knot, or Käpälikkö or Hannunvaakuna in Finnish. It's an ancient symbol that was carved or painted on houses, tools and utensils to protect them and their owners from evil spirits and bad luck. May they bring all who wear them good luck and protection!
This is a part of the Peilikuva Collection, made in collaboration with my sister, Sara Thornton. We are thrilled to be combining my love of wood, with her tablet weaving to bring these designs to life.
These are light-weight wooden earrings and 0.35 inches diameter.
