Last October, at elk camp, Robbie and I were sleeping and the fire in the stove had gone out and the tipi walls were rustling in the night wind and the tip of my nose was cold and I was exhausted but awake and a wolf pack started up. All around the meadow we were camped in I heard their voices ring out against the starshine. It was beautiful music but the horses were going berserkers on the highline and before we unzipped our sleeping bags and crawled out of our tipi to go and check on our beasts of burden and all our knots, I thought to myself, "I need a little wolf to hang around my neck..."
Well time has passed and I've made plenty of little wolf necklaces so I've branched out into wolf earrings. I love this motif and find it creeping into so much of my work lately.
I call this style of earring "SHIELDS". They wear at an angle that frames the face. I've always loved this style of earring. This design features my wolf running under neugold (jeweler's brass) full moon. Plenty of grace and grit here.
Length: About 2 inches in length with a latched ear wire.
Weight: 16.9 grams each -- please note this is a heavy earring. I made one prototype pair in this size and then I sized the design down for a more comfortable fit. Sensitive lobes will have to pass this pair of earrings up.
See deep, hear far, run fast, keep your pack in order.
