  • Hands clasped together holding an open fan: "Forgive me"
  • Covering the left ear with an open fan: "Do not betray our secret"
  • Hiding the eyes behind an open fan: "I love you"

Hand Carved Mother of Pearl and a Medieval Proverb

Vintage Bird Earrings | Mother of Pearl Jewelry | Bird in the Bush | Artisan Design

Bird in the Bush Earring 

Who could not be enchanted by these beautiful Earrings. Vintage mother of pearl discs are mounted with a beautiful hand carved vintage mother of pearl bird.

Framed by a gorgeous ornate patinated vintage frame featuring an ancient forest of the flower of love : The Rose.

The literary origin of the phrase “ A Bird in the Hand is Worth Two in the Bush “ was first recorded in 1670 in John Ray’s – A Handbook of Proverbs.

In medieval times, Falconry was on the rise as a means to hunt prey. The owner of the Falcons could not risk losing their trained birds to catch a prey and the rule was to only ever to try and catch prey that was easily accessible. Hence the expression “ a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush”

The Song of these Vintage Birds is both Golden and Pure

Bird Jewelry | Vintage Bird Earrings | White and Gold Jewelry | Bohemian Design | Artisan

Song Earrings

These sweet vintage golden hoops have been hung with two vintage lovebirds singing out their chorus of love for each other. All vintage and all beautiful.

It is their song that makes birds so remarkable. Their voices are not only the voice of the spirit, as we usually think, they are also the voices of the instincts deep down in our body ; the sound of blood and bone, tissue and nerves- the instincts of animals.

The birds singing wakes us up in the morning, they call us to our lives.

" The intangible that is invisible as well as untouchable can still be audible " Theodore Reik

Harnessing its potent energy is powerful, so if you're itching to ask the universe for something important, the black moon is the perfect time to do it!
