The Odyssey Earring —
The Chasing Clouds Collection.
She’s running after something, who knows what. At times she’s alive and full of wonder, other times she’s pensive, lost in the dark wood. The clouds are constantly changing. At times they abound in firey reds and purples of all types; at others they turn inward in menacing charcoals, covering the blues and unveiling the rain. The clouds are constantly changing. At times they seem tangible: in reach as they are in sight. Other times they are but wisps that threaten to dissipate if she gets too close.
But still, she goes on, chasing clouds.
All of Dante's characters find themselves pondering the things they used to chase on earth- from opulent wealth to magnificent power; from carnal lust to intoxicating knowledge - these are their clouds.
The Odyssey Earring represents the pursuit of these clouds. This is a piece of Dante's odyssey; take it with you on your travels, as an emblem to show that the best journeys are often those that are fragmented, those that do not go to plan.
Wear it as a single earring for an asymmetrical look, or combine with the Stolen Moment Earring.
The Odyssey Earring is cast in 24kt gold-plated bronze.
