Brass phurba earring with 925 sterling posts.
The phurba is a three-sided dagger traditionally associated with Tibetan Buddhism, the Bön religion, and Indian Vedic traditions and is used in exorcisms. A demon might think twice about messing with your head with these dangling from your ears.
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.
