The Sweetwater Earrings. Constructed of American mined Turquoise, 5 gemstones on each, to be exact. Each from the same mine, but with wonderful variation in each oval stone from a blue green with rust webbing to a rich teal with black. Perfectly balanced, and surprisinly lightweight.
For the everyday.
I LOVE these guys...So much in fact...I almost kept this pair for myself. I say this a lot...but its true!
Hand cut sterling silver bases. Soldered on to hammered silver wire.
Heavily textured. Made from VERY rough sterling silver.
Accented with hand cut, American mined Turquoise.
Hand buffed and oxidized for a soft glow.
Surprisingly Light given the amount of material in each.
There is no maker's mark on these guys...because they were a protype and I really did want to keep them for myself.
2 1/4'' from the tip of the ear wire to the base of the drop. Sterling silver hand made wires.
Body measures 1 1/8'' x 1 6/8''
Made with lotsa love, heart and soul.
Note to Buyers:
All of the items in my collections are handmade and hand finished, from natural and reclaimed materials. Because of this, no two items are exactly alike or are they perfect. All handmade items will have natural imperfections. It is these slight imperfections that give handcrafted items their innate soulful character and appeal. It's not for everyone...but I like a little old soul in each and every piece I create.
The term "reclaimed" means items or materials used in making of merchandise are re-purposed, and recycled.
Shipping...I live rurally and only make it to the post once per week, so...these danglers will be available to ship in one weeks time :)
