Over 400 millions years old (older than the Dinosaur or the Spider) the ancient Scorpion has been an image of both destruction and healing over the ages. Like the Spider, it is both nocturnal and poisonous, carrying potent venom in its stinger as well as a fierce strength in its front pincers. Many species of Scorpion are subterranean, often waiting underground in solitude, emerging to ensnare and devour its prey. This links Scorpion the Underworld like Spider; its unconscious, instinctual nature helps him conquer transformation within the shadowy depths.

Often feared with venom strong enough in some species to mortally poison man, this Scorpion acts as a protective talisman and also a talisman of transformation.

Cast in sterling silver and hand finished to achieve our signature shade of gloomy gray, each earring is 65mm long and 20mm wide at its widest point. Hollowed out in the back for weight balance, on sterling silver french hooks.
