This lovely design motif that we all know well, traces its origin back to Persia and the Sassanid empire around 221 AD. Originally called a Buta or Boteh (which means flower), the paisley was considered a symbol of life and eternity. Not a bad message to muse upon as you go about your day to day, in this pair of splendid little earrings. Hand sewn, embroidered satin pendants, embellished with sequins, paired up with Swarovski crystals, Balinese sterling silver flower spacers, and sterling silver ear wires. May you love your paisley days!
