Brass Nepali earring with carnelian stone and gold filled ear wire.
The three spheres on top represent the Three Jewels of Tibetan Buddhism: 1. The Buddha, 2. The Dharma (The Law and The Divine Plan) and 3. The Sangha (Community).
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.
