“Spiral of Life” Filigreed Silver Earrings
The nautilus, depicted on these earrings, is a ‘marvelous spiral’ or logarithmic spiral according to Jacob Bernoulli, a 17th century mathematician. This figure has evolved in nature, appearing in certain growing forms such as nautilus shells and sunflower heads. These spirals in nature are symbolic of the cycle of birth, life, and death, and the earth from which we come and to which we shall return. These exquisitely handcrafted .925 silver earrings are produced by hand working tiny silver wires into the forms you see here.
