First Earring Workshop

Big thank you to Elinor who made it all happen.

Here again those wired and wonderful facts about earrings: Ear piercing is one of the oldest forms of body modification. Well recorded in ancient Egypt and Persia.

Other early evidence is a biblical record in Exodus 32 1-4, when the Israelites demand that Aaron make a god for them while Moses is on mount Sinai. Aaron commanded them to bring their son’s and daughter’s earrings and other gold jewellery.(ca 1500BC)

Among sailors it was a sign, they had crossed the equator or sailed around the world. Also a gold earring was worn as payment in the event they might drown at sea and get washed on land to buy them a proper burial.

German trades men wear one earring they get on finishing their apprenticeship and go on the journey. If they fall out with the law the earring get ripped out for everybody to see they are not trust worthy. Hence the name “Schlitzohr”.

In a lot of countries it is still tradition to this day to pierce girls ears in the first few weeks after birth.

So enjoy your earrings studs, dangling, silver, gold, with or without gems, or any other way. Have fun.

An initiative of three German girls, exchanging our best loved chocolate recipes and sending the much loved sweets to a postal partner they have picked by chance.

I am sending my chocolate treats to Sandra in Kerry, I wonder what I’ll receive from her.

What beautiful weather we had today, restoring the promise of hope and sunshine.

All my plants in the garden are feeling abundant, with fresh green and lot’s of growth.

That’s how the mother ring grew the mother in the centre with children spinning around always busy, always fast, the mother grounds and centers herself and is ready for everything. Calming influence, nurturing, holding and fun.Image
