Bodhi Leaf Earrings

Artist Statement: In addition to my ginkgo leaf jewelry, I have recently added my new interpretation of the Bodhi Leaf or Pipal leaf to my collection. The Bodhi or Pipal tree is a very old Sacred Fig tree under which the spiritual teacher and founder of Buddhism achieved enlightenment, or Bodhi.

These smaller sized Bodhi leaf earrings are fold formed and shaped in copper which has been given a warm matte brown patina finish. A sterling silver ear wire curves gracefully from the leaf adding to the overall design and enhancing the look of the ear ring when it is on your ear.
