Description

Steampunk Earrings with Pink Swarovski Crystals, Rose Swarovski Crystal Earrings, Statement Jewelry, Wire Wrapped, Eileithyia II v6 Eileithyia: (or Ilithyia) was the goddess of childbirth and labour pains. depicted as a woman wielding a torch, representing the burning pains of childbirth, or with her arms raised in the air to bring the child to the light. According to some there were two Eileithyiai, one who furthered birth and one who protracted the labour. Her name means "she who comes to aid" or "relieve" from the Greek word el?luthyia. When Alkmene was in labour with Herakles, Hera sent Eileithyia to stay the birth and so kill mother and child. However, Alkmene's handmaiden Galinthias spied the goddess seated before the door with her arms and legs crossed, and cried "a son is born." The goddess leapt up in surprise, releasing her magical grip on the womb, allowing the child to be born. Eileithyia was furious at being tricked by the woman and transformed Galinthias into a polecat. Retaining rings, 28ga hot pink wire, rose Swarovski crystals and vintage clock hands and gears... Very elegant and eye catching!
