Touch the Earth
Lighthearted and full of movement, this design by K Robiins was introduced April 2012 in honor of Earth Day.
Sterling Silver 1.25″ x 1.0″
Walking with bare feet reminds us to be sensitive to our surroundings, feeling the warmth, softness and hardness of Mother Earth. A way of living authentically, strong, and vulnerable.
We wash our feet or remove our shoes before entering some religious buildings or holy places as a sign of humility and respect. We have pressure points on our feet that correspond with every gland, organ, and part of our body! We apply pressure to these places naturally when we go barefoot upon the Earth.
K Robins. I was born and raised in Virginia and reside there in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. An epiphany of sorts occurred around 1980 and I began to see life in a new way. While my young children played nicely upstairs I would steal away to my basement shop where I normally made furniture, cooking utensils and an assortment of other wooden things. Now to my amazement, out of the wood and sawdust, a series of female figurines was erupting. The original cherry, boxwood, rosewood and ebony symbols and figures have evolved into a line of silver pendants that includes nearly 100 designs.
Many of the jewelry designs come from my fascination with the language of symbols and how the art of different cultures and times echoes around the world.All cultures surround themselves with symbols of some sort and naturally pass them reverently from generation to generation. These symbols lift up and guide us through life’s interwoven cycles of birth, life, death and rebirth.
