'Chhahara', Handmade Silver Earrings

$69

Chhahara is Nepali for 'Waterfall' - Handmade Silver Earrings

Certified Sterling Silver and entirely made by hand. These earrings are Tibetan inspired. The pattern in the middle is what is known as 'chasing', which is a hammering technique that creates very fine yet intricate spiral patterns. A Tibetan Turquoise stone, known as the 'Sky Stone' to the Tibetans, is mounted below. The significance of the colour being the same as the sky above, is that it is seen as being sent from heaven, and harnesses healing qualities which uplift the mind, body, and spirit. It is indeed the national stone of Tibet. 

Each pair are unique and one of a kind.
