In the Sixties “Om” (or Aum”) was placed in pop culture through out America and Europe. Even the Moody Blues even wrote a song “Aum” in the finale of “In search of the Lost Chord” of their Threshold series. Even as our pop-culture moved on to other things, Om continued to be what it is: a very sacred and complex idea. In an earlier blog I wrote a bit about it’s use and history. I created my own version of the Om Amulet by encasing it within a circle.
To accompany the Om Amulet, I have also developed the Om Earrings. The symbol is made with a small bail within the top of the Sanskrit word, then I added a jump ring to suspend it with a earring finding. The added jump ring gives the glyph additional movement as it adorns the ear. Flanked on either side with an OM, one is surrounded with eternity and peace. These earrings are for those who wish to be reminded of and/or wish to harness the depth of this “simple” symbol.
