Intergalactic opal earrings.
For just about anybody who sees these earrings, they are a throwback to StarTrek. They hold a special place in my heart because they carry a double meaning. First off, as you tilt them, the opals shine various colors, apparently never the same, reminding us that the same object can be viewed differently depending on the point of view...and still be the same. Second, I feel that StarTrek and many sci-fi books and movies often promoted tolerance and acceptance that society as we know it may not be the only viable social organization. The two symbols enforce each others - and hence, they are my intergalactic opals!
The opals are sublets from Australia, set in patinated, texturedsterling silver.
