Native American"OOAK" Shy Wind Dancer "Four Directions" Dangle Earring

Details

I named these Fascinating earrings "Shy Wind Dancer" after my granddaughter.
When she was little, (age 3)...she chose these colors for her Dance Regalia.
These earrings will dance around with movement, the same as she did when she danced to the rhythm of the drum.
So if you are looking for something unique and gorgeous, then add these Indigenous Treasures to your Jewelry collection,
I like to put my own artistic spin on traditional, indigenous art.

These lovely earrings were created using black, red, yellow, and white E-Beads, seed beads, using the colors of the four directions. In the top center, there is 4 E-beads, of white, black, yellow and red in a oblong copper link, and attatched to it is a 12mm copper cone bead, with 5 beaded dangles hanging from it, and in the center of cone, hangs a beautiful feather charm.
Earrings...3-1/2" long

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

When Native American people pray or do anything sacred, they see the world as having four directions. From these four directions come the four winds. Each direction has a special meaning and color associated with it.

More Info


North (White) - North brings the cold, harsh winds of the winter season. These winds are cleansing. They cause the leaves to fall and the earth to rest under a blanket of snow. If someone has the ability to face these winds like the buffalo with its head into the storm, they have learned patience and endurance. Generally, this direction stands for hardships and discomfort to people. Therefore, north represents the trials people must ensure and the cleansing they must undergo.

West (Black) - To the west, the sun sets, and the day ends. For this reason, west signifies the end of life. As Black Elk says, "... toward the setting sun of his life." The great Thunderbird lives in the west and sends thunder and rain from its direction. For this reason, the west is also the source of water: rain, lakes, streams and rivers. Nothing can live without water, so the west is vital.

East (Yellow) - The direction from which the sun comes. Light dawns in the morning and spreads over the earth. This is the beginning of a new day. It is also the beginning of understanding because light helps us see things the way they really are. On a deeper level, East stands for the wisdom helping people live good lives. Traditional people rise in the morning to pray facing the dawn, asking God for wisdom and understanding.

South (Red) - Because the southern sky is when the sun is at its highest, this direction stands for warmth and growing. The sun's rays are powerful in drawing life from the earth. It is said the life of all things comes from the south. Also, warm and pleasant winds come from the south. When people pass into the spirit world, they travel the Milky Way's path back to the south - returning from where they came.
