An equal Armed cross in a circle
sometimes referred to a Odin’s Cross as earrings.
This shape has been cited in the prehistoric religions of the bronze age of Europe.
Connected with the Bronze Age of Europe’s Spoked Chariot Wheel
(originally, the wheel had four spokes)
seems to have reached Europe in the mid second millennium BC
in the context of the Sun Chariot.
The symbol also appears on the Snoldelev Stone in Denmark:
a ninth century Rune Stone.
In Native American terms,
the symbol represents the universe separated in it’s active and passive principles.
Similar to the descendants of the old religions of European Solar Traditions,
the wheel of the year illustrates the movement of the seasons:
the solstices and equinoxes.
The time of year has great meaning to the Old Ways: when to plant,
when to harvest, when to prepare for winter etc.
Made of metal,
but the texture is that of stone,
referring to it’s ancient origins.
The Solar Cross Earrings
are bold and stand away from the disk:
giving them a very three dimensional feel
