Dogwood Earrings were inspired by two early 20th century American art sources. The first is the stained glass window, Dogwood, ca. 1900-1915, created by the Tiffany Studios. The second is the painting Dogwood Blossoms, ca.1906 by the American Impressionist Willard Metcalf. We delight in the color and form of the blossoms and twisted branches of this wonderful tree.
The Dogwood was a symbol of reliability and durability due to the strength of the wood. In the Victorian tradition, a Dogwood sprig also carried a message of love and passion when offered by a bachelor to a woman he felt affection towards.
