Ozymandias Earrings

Regular price $60.00

Named after the Percy Shelley poem, these forgotten crowns contain delicately hand-weaved dried moss throughout and hang on silver ear hooks.

Like a forgotten empire, these crowns have become part of the environment and are now overtaken by flora. Wear these gorgeous green moss earrings as a simple, but elegant focal point at work, or dress them up for a black tie event.

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shatter’d visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamp’d on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
“My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!”
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare,
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

-Percy Bryce Shelley
