Story: These Sage Leaf Earrings were made from an actual leaf in my garden. First I asked the plant if I could have a leaf. I learned this practice as a young child and it has never left me. The fragrance of the sage is amazing. I then made a mold of the leaf. The patterns of the sage leaf are astounding to me. And, the sparkle they emit is spectacular!
Materials: For these earrings, I used Fine Silver Metal Clay. The lever back ear wires are made from 925 Sterling Silver. I like using lever back ear wires because you get movement in the earrings and they are safe when wearing a mask.
Measurement: The Sage Leaf Earrings measure 1 1/4 x 1/2″.
Care: Use your jewelry cloth to keep the sparkle in these earrings.
Meaning: The meaning of sage is characterized by wisdom; wisdom through reflection, and experience. The sage bush itself is a culinary herb used in cooking. Sage is popular in smudges to banish negative energy, cleanse and purify.
