Handcrafted original Bear earrings. The Great Bear, or Ursa Major is one of the most recognizable constellations. It dates back to ancient Greece and the love of Zeus for Callisto, who later became the mother bear in the stars. The Celts also believed in a bear goddess, Artio – like a mother bear she was a fiercely protective influence. In Native American mythology the bear is highly respected as the ‘keeper of dreams’, and is one of the most powerful totems.
The Ark Collection reflects our desire to connect with these animal totems and carry with us the qualities they embody.
