Symbolism of Butterflies
Butterflies have universal symbolism. They are deep and powerful representations of life. Many cultures associate the butterfly with our souls. Around the world, people view the butterfly as representing endurance, change, hope, and life.
In addition, the butterfly is one of the most emblematic totem animals. It symbolizes personal transformation.
Butterflies also symbolize:
- Powerful Transformation, Metamorphosis in your life;
- Moving through different life cycles;
- Lightness of Being, Playfulness;
- Elevation from Earthly Matters
In short, the meaning associated with the butterfly emphasizes the ability to move from one state, perspective, and/or lifestyle to another.
Symbolism of Spirals
Moreover, the spirals on these butterfly earrings are powerful symbols of creation and growth.
Furthermore, one of the oldest geometric shapes found throughout the ancient world are spirals. Petroglyphs of spirals date back to around the Neolithic period. Yet, ancient cultures throughout the world carved the same symbol but they had little or no communication with each other.
The spiral is fundamental to nature. It appears on animals such as the snail and seashells. It also occurs in natural phenomena such as whirlpools, hurricanes, tornadoes and spinning galaxies. The spiral has become a powerful symbol for creation and growth. Many ancient cultures and religious traditions incorporate spirals. Symbolism Of Spirals
Wear these butterfly earrings whenever you want to create, grow, or transform your life in a powerful way, whenever you find yourself moving through a life cycle, whenever you want to be reminded of renewal, whenever you want to be playful, and whenever you want to be elevated from earthly matters.
I was inspired to design and make these butterfly earrings as part of a larger earring collection that I call my Simply Elegant Earring Collection. Each pair of earrings in this collection is simple and elegant because I wire wrap one bead into each one. Each one is elegant because of the wire wrapped design of the earring wires, the beads, or both.
