I Ching Chinese coin bagua charm trigram natural feather long earrings
These natural earrings add an earthy, post-hippie vibe to any occasion. Tribal, really.
The feathers in this listing are rooster coque shlappen, which ranges from bronze to iridescent forest green, combined either auburn red-brown furnace hackle, or black with white dots guinea hen. You can request either furnace or guinea; otherwise, I'll choose for you.
The 1" (25mm) octagon I Ching replica coin represents the four elements and four sub-elements of the universe, written as a three-line combination of solid (yang) and open (yin) lines. The four elements, from which all things in the universe originate, are Heaven (Qian), Water (Kan), Earth (Kun), and Fire (Li). The four sub-elements are Mountain (Gen), Wind (Xun), Thunder (Zhen), and Lake (Dui). In the center of the coin is the symbol for Yin Yang, complementary opposites within a larger whole which are necessary for existence. Male/female, dark/light, one cannot exist without the other.
The three-line symbols are called trigrams, and are used in both feng shui and divination. Eight trigrams together form a bagua. Bagua charms are worn to repel evil spirits.
The flip side of the coin shows the signs of the Chinese Zodiac. The default design for this earring is I Ching in front and a random zodiac sign in back. HOWEVER, you may specify which Zodiac sign, and whether it faces front or back.
