The Hestia earrings are inspired by the Goddess of hearth, home, architecture, domesticity, family, and the state.
Greek custom required that as the goddess of sacrificial fire, Hestia should receive the first offering at every sacrifice in the household. In the public domain, the hearth of the prytaneum functioned as her official sanctuary. Whenever a new colony was established, a flame from Hestia's public hearth in the mother city would be carried to the new settlement.

About the collection:
The Deusa ex Machina collection is inspired by the female deities and Goddesses of Greek Mythology. Each design is inspired by and named after a Goddess. For example, with a little bit of imagination one can see the pommegranate in the design of the Persephone earring, and growth in the Demeter earring.
Each design is created with a one of a kind touch, meaning that the colour combos in adornments will not be repeated, thus each piece is numbered with Roman numerals in the order they were created.
