Batina is an Arabic name meaning ‘inner, hidden, obscure, or concealed’. This name was chosen for these earrings based on what the two components that make up this earring represent together.
The earring includes the Akirah spiral, which means 'hereafter' or 'what comes next' in Arabic and represents the reward after struggle. The second portion of the earring features the Maraya pendant, which means 'mirrors' in Arabic. It speaks on a surface level to the idea that everything that we’re attracted and drawn to act as little mirrors reflecting various aspects of who we are.
My intention is for the Zahira Earrings to serve as a reminder that as we experience trials we exist in a period of transition. Though the result remains unseen during the trial, the reward is what comes next.
