Button earrings in Argentium silver with Celtic Triskele granulation design.
The three-fold spiral pattern on these earrings is a common motif of the ancient world. Called a “triskele”, meaning “three legs”, it can symbolize many concepts, most commonly that of movement and the union of different forces coming together. In Celtic spirituality, it represents the three elements of Nature: Earth, Sea, and Sky, and their endless movement around and through each other and all of creation.
I made these earrings from a disk that I gave a subtle texture, overlaid with wirework and granulation and a surrounding twisted rope of silver. They are a simple design which is timeless and elegant.
These are post earrings, finished on the back so they look good from all sides.
They are a bit over 1/2 inch across, and about 1/8 inch thick, so they are dainty and easy to wear with comfort-fit backs.
