Brass eternal knot earring with garnet bead and long brass ear wire.
The eternal knot or endless knot is one of the eight auspicious Buddhist symbols. It can mean the oneness of all life or the continuous stream of consciousness or the fact that life continues until you break the wheel of rebirth.
The designer of this wonderful collection is Andrea Layton. Back when many of us were hippies, I wanted to go to Kathmandu and around the world. I made it as far as California. Andrea followed her dreams and wound up in Bali and Java for 25 years. There with Javanese craftsman she precipitated these unique designs. We particularly like her Tantra collection inspired by Tibetan influences. She brought Kathmandu to us.
