Take advantage of the great price on this amazing pair of earrings! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Elaine Shirley, out of genuine sterling silver and a real Coral 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.
Corals are known to be very soothing and very protective. Coral is of an organic origin; it is the skeletal remains of marine animals called Coral Polyps. Colonies of these tiny creatures build branching structures as they grow, gradually forming reefs and atolls.
