The name for this design comes from Gloria Steinem's book on Self-Esteem. She talks about our need to love ourselves, and love others (forming the circle).
The design is a figure with arms creating a circle - on one earring the hug goes outward, and on one it goes inward.
Since our mothers usually teach us first about this circle, what a perfect mother's day gift for your special mother!
This is part of my talisman line, honoring women - check out my feminist page here on etsy, and my talisman page on my own website to see more original designs: www.awtdesigns.com I am always happy to create a special etsy listing just for you!

Sterling silver will tarnish over time. If you keep it in a zip lock bag it will help. You can clean it with toothpaste, or any silver cleaner. Avoid dip-it cleaners containing sulphuric acid as they will make it tarnish faster.
Argentium sterling silver does not develop black tarnish, but it does develop a slight yellow tone which wipes off with a cloth.
Gold-filled, titanium and niobium do not tarnish.
I send all orders in tissue and a small gift bag. Please specify if you are ordering more than one and they are gifts.
I will consider wholesale purchases to brick and mortar galleries anywhere in the world. We can discuss minimum orders and wholesale rates - just start a conversation with me.
