The Ellipse Earrings are loaded with symbolism. The imagery is of a beech tree leaf with a beech branch hand-cut inside of it, with a precious stone representing a blossom.
Trees are a symbol of immense and enduring strength and protection, something we wish for all women and girls around the world. The beech tree, in Celtic tradition, represents tolerance, patience and lightness of spirit.
This design was created by Made By Survivors founder and President, Sarah Symons, together with Soma Seal, our Calcutta Program Manager. Says Sarah, "I chose the beech tree for my inspiration because working on this issue, and with traumatized young girls, requires patience above all. Building a business takes patience too! When I wear the Ellipse pieces, I am reminded to keep a cool head. Positive changes will happen if we do the work with love".
