Cherubim first appear in the Bible in the Garden of Eden, to guard the way to the Tree of life.
They first appear in chapter one, when Ezekiel was “by the river Chebar,” In chapter 10, Exekiel saw “the likeness of four living creatures.” Each of them had four faces and four wings, with straight feet that had soles like a calf’s foot, and “hands of a man” under their wings. Each had four faces: the face of a man, the face of a lion on the right side, the face of an ox on the left side, and the face of an eagle.
I don’t know what Ezekiel was on, and these gorgeous earrings aren’t quite so psychedelic, but they are sweet, lovely and playfully odd all the same. Created from thrifted gold and pearl earrings that could be 80’s or older, heavily encrusted with many layers of verdigris patina over a period of weeks, and then embellished with very rare pink Czech glass beads that feature tiny iridescent dimples. These are just so sweet, like a cupcake and perhaps you’d like to have a pair of Cherubim guarding your way to the Tree of Life.
The ear nuts were long gone and after much research I’ve decided upon a style to include… they are rubber with a wider pad that holds the earring in place and spreads the weight on your lobe in a very comfy manner. These are not heavy and the ear nut makes them adjustable for perfect fit.
Absolutely one of a kind! Remember to click on images below to enlarge.
