Take advantage of the great price on this amazing pair of earrings! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Rosie Chee, out of genuine sterling silver and a man made Pink Opal stone. The stone is placed in the center of a silver web design, while a silver feather dangles at the end of each earring for a lovely finish. It is believed that each carefully woven web will catch your bad dreams in the night. The bad spirit dreams will get caught in the web and disappear with the morning sun. However, the good spirit dreams will find their way to the center spirit hole and will float down the sacred feather. Feathers are symbols of prayers, marks of honor or sources of ideas. They represent the Creative Force.
Most people know Opal for its distinctive play of color, it is a semi-transparent solidified mineral composed of silicon and water, and it gets its name from the Latin word "Oplus" meaning precious stone. Opal is birthstone of October. It is believed to release self-consciousness allowing spontaneous action, and awakens psychic and mystical qualities.
