Between a Rock & the Heart's Place

Created using a symbolic combination of polished stones, Ana Sheldon's totem earrings possess heartfelt messages. Along a sterling silver spine, the artist stacks 4 semi-precious stone beads representing different aspects of creativity, strength, and blessings. Made in USA, Italy, and Russia. Beads are from companies in California and New Mexico, but are imported from all over the world.

Blessings (left) - this totem contains Wood, Ocean Japser, Carnelian, and Turquoise which combined have characteristics for appreciation, ambition, and good fortune.
Strength (middle) - contains Labradorite, White Jade, Onyx, and Rutilated Quartz which combined have characteristics for focus, strength, and luck.
Creativity (right) - contains Wood, Picture Jasper, Blue Lace Agate, and Apatite which combined have characteristics for creativity, calming, and acceptance.

Drawing inspiration from the organic shapes of natural stones, she seeks to create sculptural jewelry that brings beauty to everyday wear. collection

      Comments about TOTEM EARRINGS:

      The earrings are nice but much smaller than I thought they would be (especially for the price). I suppose I should have paid more attention to the dimensions listed. What I was most disappointed in was that there was no little card that came with the earrings to talk about what the different stones mean. I'm going to print it off myself to include with my gift. The meaning behind the stones was the whole reason for getting this set of earrings.

      We've gotten some great customer feedback since adding Ana Sheldon's custom totem and inspirational totem necklaces to our assortment, so we thought we'd give the earring version a try! What do you love about her Blessings, Creativity, and Strength designs? Which is your favorite?

      For those who appreciate the specific energies of different stones, please make sure the description contains correct stones in the order in which they are stacked - thanks.

      Thanks for catching that, Gayla. We're updating the product story to explain each totem in the order they're pictured.

      Very New Age but not appealing to my eyes.

      I don't understand the metal backing. They would be much nicer without that such a big piece of metal behind the beads, allowing them to have some movement.

      the earrings are colorful but not for me

      I don't like earrings that are that long, and you should be able to see the stones from all sides....the backing makes them to dark

      Vote: Thumbs up!

      Oh, the secrets of the earth abound! I would choose Blessings for the deep color tones...and Creativity for the characteristics...and what the heck...who doesn't need a little Strength now and then?

      Vote: Thumbs down!

      like the beads, but the backing just seems to take away from those.
