Piece created for ANTIVIRUS, Tincal lab Quarantine Challenge
Materials sterling silver, oxidised
In France and in a lot of countries in the world, crossing fingers is a way of saying "let's hope so". It's a very superstitious tradition, heritage of the Christianity symbol: the cross.
In French, we have an expression "croix de bois, croix de fer, si je mens, je vais en enfer" which means "wood cross, iron cross, if I lie, I'll go to hell". It was mostly used by children playing and swearing.
The earring represent a hand crossing her fingers. It's a lucky charm protecting you and giving you your child soul back, trustful, innocent, not thinking about the worst because you are safe.
