New Mexico's state symbol, the Zia Sun Symbol, is depicted in these hammered copper and picture jasper earrings. Copper sheet metal is handcut and hammered, then stamped at the top and wrapped with wire on the sides and bottom of the central cutout to form the four points of the Zia Sun Symbol. A round picture jasper is strung on copper and dangles inside the cutout to form the circle. The earrings are strung on handcrafted sterling silver wires.

The Zia Sun Symbol originates with the Zia Indians and reflects their philosophy.

Four is the sacred number of Zia, and the symbol consists of a central circle from which four points radiate. These points, each containing four lines, represent the sacred fours of the earth:

The Four Directions: North, South, East, & West
The Four Seasons: Winter, Spring, Summer, & Fall
The Four Parts of The Day: Sunrise, Noon, Evening, & Night
The Four Stages of Life: Childhood, Youth, Adulthood, & Old Age

Everything is bound together in a circle of life and love, without beginning, without end.

I chose Picture Jasper for the stone in these earrings to represent Mother Earth - picture jasper is said to be Mother Earth telling a story, which seemed to complement the Zia Sun Symbol perfectly. But if you'd like a pair in another stone, let me know.

Dimensions: Copper rectangle is approx. 1.25" (3 cm) x .75" (2 cm). Total earring length is approx 1.5" (4.5 cm).

All metal components are handcrafted in house.

Shown with coordinating Zia necklace, this listing is for the earrings only.

When shipping to a US address, this item ships via USPS Priority Mail (typically 2-3 days service).

Like all Ella & Tess jewelry pieces, this item is packaged in a cotton-lined gift box - ready to present and easy to store. An anti-tarnish tab is included.
