Wind turbine earrings, handmade from 999 silver and embellished with genuine 8×8 mm turquoise gemstones. 5 cm large yet very light to wear. These modern wind turbine earrings symbolize the power of air. They have been shaped using an old Japanese decorative pattern.
The “blades” of the wind turbine earrings are in fact three leaves. The triple leaf pattern is a popular pattern, not only in Japan but throughout the world. At the same time it is a shape of a modern wind turbine pinwheel. It is interesting why wind turbines have three blades: in fact it is just an aerodynamic compromise. The more blades the more the resistance. Each blade disturbs the air for the following blade.
When making these wind turbine earrings I did not think about aerodynamics. The blue turquoise cabochons reminded me of the blue sky and of the air which moves along the pinwheel. The air, invisible, yet so powerful. symbolism of these dangles is the power of air.
The “wind turbines” have been shaped from precious metal clay which results in objects of 999 silver content.
