mistletoe earrings

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Designed in collaboration with the Cleveland Museum of Art, these mistletoe earrings have beautiful freshwater pearls set in hand-patinaed bronze on french wires from Michael Michaud. Mistletoe was a sacred plant to both the Druids and the Norse. According to Norse myth, when the god Baldur was killed by a mistletoe arrow, his mother Frigga wept white berries which brought him back to life. The mistletoe was then blessed by Frigga so that whoever stood beneath it received a kiss. The Druids collected mistletoe by cutting it with a gold sickle, catching it in a cloth before it could hit the ground. The sprigs were placed over doorways to protect the dwelling and bring blessings.
