“It is only through reading that your intelligence is developed. When you open a book, it looks like a bird with open wings. When you learn to read with understanding, when you can open the book of knowledge, when you can understand what you read, then that is like giving a man wings.” - Hon. Louis Farrakhan
This piece was named 'vuelo’ (meaning ‘flight’ in Spanish) and represents higher thought. We admire the grace of birds and the beauty of their flight. They learned from the moment of lift-off to overcome resistance. Through study, learning to overcome difficulty is not only integral to reaching greater heights, but integral to freedom.
My intention for the Vuelo Earrings is to serve as a reminder that what comes naturally is not necessarily what comes easily, but through study we qualify ourselves for success.
