| Merchant: Wolf & Badger The Astrology Collection is inspired by the way our interwoven knowledge of science and mythology are inextricably linked to create our personal identities as our stories form our cultural DNA. In the Ancient Greek tale, after Zeus had defeated his father Cronos, he subdued the race of the giants, children of Gaia. In revenge, Gaia sent the monster Typhon to destroy the Olympian gods who transformed themselves into animals to hide. Aphrodite and her son Eros dived into the sea as twin fish which, in gratitude for borrowing their form, she later placed in the stars. The earring is formed of a simple stud which supports a circle - considered to be the most geometrically perfect shape - holding an accurate cluster of the stars forming the constellation, which is held suspended in space by delicate wire. The Astrology Collection is inspired by the way our knowledge of science is interwoven with the enduring legacy of the classical myths. For me, the two are inextricably linked, thus creating both our personal identities, and the stories which form our cultural DNA. Solid Sterling Silver can become tarnished over time, if this happens the most simple way to restore your earrings is to use Silver Dip. A polishing cloth may also be used.
