Dogtooth Amethyst Origami Earrings
Purple has long been the color of royalty and nobility. It is a deep, passionate color that evokes emotions. People who desire purple colors are individuals who like to make a personal statement, and express their unique taste. The Greek work "amethystos" basically can be translated as "not drunken" , expresses the ancient folk belief that the stone protects its owner against drunkenness. As the myth goes, drinking wine from an Amethyst goblet would prevent one from becoming inebriated. The gemstone still symbolizes sobriety.
Remember to bring your amethyst goblet ladies, on girls night out! ;-)
This earring is about 1.5 inches long, blue and purple origami paper, accompanied by "dogtooth" Amethyst beads.
