Well, it's a little early to be harvesting squash, but my garden is beginning to pop and everybody loves these saucy earrings, so i've decided to list them a little early. Enjoy!

Pumpkin squash, ready to pick right around Samhain (beginning Halloween) makes for great lanterns, to ward off evil spirits! In Celtic lore, Samhain is the gateway to winter, as the harvest draws to a close. These little earrings are ripe, juicy carnelian balls, wrapped in copper twists and a little Celtic knot that mimic a wink of the eye and the lacey tendrils of the gourd, squash, or pumpkin that might reside in your garden. I've then aged and burnished the metal until it glows like autumn sun, or the Jack O'Lantern's smile, and let them fly on hypoallergenic niobium ear wires.

I grew up in the north of England. At Halloween we carved turnips, or swedes (very difficult it was, too!) and with the help of a candle they glowed with all their protective magic, on that scary eve. Now, these little squash desire to adorn your ears, with their own warm glow that welcomes the season, and defies the cold to come!

Carnelian, as any good witchy-type might know, is reputed to have very powerful properties, such as nourishing and vitalizing one's entire being, bestowing optimism and enthusiasm for life. An agate class of chalcedony, carnelian is said to be a stone of creativity, individuality and courage, aiding in memory, including recall of past lives, and assisting in finding one's true mate.

*** The actual earrings shown have been sold; yours will be made virtually identical, from the same gemstone strand, and especially for Boo! ... I mean... for you! (Sorry...)
