Tiny umbrella earrings: Why?
Umbrellas may be very practical and mundane things, yet they are symbols with many meanings and have many associations. Think of Mary Poppins, the Travelers Insurance logo, John Steed of the Avengers, or Gene Kelly “Singin' in the Rain.”
Also, umbrellas can give a sense of security because they offer portable shelter from rain and sun. Which in itself can inspire confidence, as in “Bring on the rain.” Or if you love the rain, umbrellas let you take long walks in it.
And a long time ago parasols were affordable only to the very wealthy, so they also carried connotations of power and dignity.
Of course they also have a very distinctive shape, a quality that makes them a worthy design motif for everything from tattoos to emoji to jewelry.
Wear these on a rainy day to keep your sunny disposition.
