Sinuous silver rods embrace ovals of Guatemalan jade. By Pablo Castellanos, these elegant earrings carry a message. "The design suggests the branches of a tree and its fruit," he says. "I named it 'Path of Life' because the tree symbolizes life – birth, growth, giving fruit and dying," he confides.
