The Theia Fringe Earrings feature a bronze cast eye and silk fringe tassels. The original master for the castings was fabricated by hand.
Theia is a Titan Goddess in Greek Mythology. She was referred to as the Mother of Light as she was an Oracle and was also responsible for instilling precious metals and stones with their intrinsic value. The Ancient Greeks believed that the eye emitted a beam of light which endowed us with vision and simultaneously associated Theia with a beam of light. She was a symbol of hope and believed to bring the promise of the banishment of darkness. In this design the eye represents the qualities associated with Theia and the fringe represents the beam of light. Each color of fringe was selected intentionally for their representation and the qualities they are said to evoke. The Theia amulet is a symbol of hope, divination, and light.
