Description

Ready to Ship!Materials: cotton thread, gold filled wire, lapis lazuli, chrysophase, aventurine, and artist's wire.Dimensions: ~>4 5/8" from top of ear wire, 2 1/4" at widest point. Ear wire is just over 1 1/4", 3/8" wide at widest point near top........................................................................Bold and earthy green statement earrings featuring a roughly faceted lapis lazuli with a gorgeous teardrop of chrysoprase wrapped in gold filled wire hanging below. The deeper green, translucent stone is aventurine which is a type of quartz with a slightly shimmery quality called "aventurescence". All of these hang from an original design crocheted onto a repurposed brass ring. This crochet design reminds me of the shape of wings and the luna moths that I love to raise. These statement earrings are not particularly weighty, but I would not call them lightweight either. For those with stretched ears, these kidney hook ear wires will fit comfortably with other jewelry and stay on your ears too.The handmade kidney hook ear wires and most of the stones were wrapped with gold filled wire. I chose to use a deeper bronze coated artist's wire for the lapis dangles to play off of the flecks of pyrite in the lapis stones. The coating on this wire will also resist tarnishing. Gold filled wire is created by using heat and pressure to apply a layer of, in this case 12 karat gold, to a base of a less costly metal. This wire will not tarnish under any usual conditions and is great for sensitivities. Those with gold allergies will of course want to avoid these........................................................................Though I take care to make my work to last, do not swim or shower with these on. Avoid contact with hairsprays, oils, or lotions as the fabric could stain just like any other. My wire work is wrapped carefully, but be mindful not to crush or bend.Color can appear slightly different due to lighting conditions or monitor settings. Items may appear larger or smaller in some cases, so please check measurements. Natural variations are the nature of stones, fiber, and handmade creations in general. Please feel free to message me with any inquiries........................................................................Note: all items created in my home studio in the company of four felines. Though they are not an active part of the creation of these, there may be a little "cat magic" that makes its way into my work. If you have allergies you may want to take that into consideration with any fiber pieces........................................................................Returns are not accepted. Please contact me with any questions or concerns before purchase., aventurine
