Green Tourmaline with Sterling and Gold Earrings
+Artist's Sample Sale: The pieces in this sale include one-offs, class samples and pieces from my personal collection that I found difficult to part with, at discounted prices!
These outstanding gemstone earrings are set with deep green, faceted tourmaline. Set on a hand shaped, dark sterling base, 24k gold has been added in the ancient technique of keum boo. The rustic texture of the sterling was hand shaped and forged. These are the perfect mix of luxe and relic! Lightweight and easy to wear.
Sterling ear wires. 2 3/4 inches from the top of the ear wire to the bottom of the earring.
Small batch. All sterling + gold. One-of-a-kind. Hand built in the heart of the West.
Tourmaline is a gemstone that can be found in many beautiful colors including green, blue, purple, brown, orange, gray, black and pink. Pink is the rarest. It's a very popular stone for jewelry.
+ All pieces are slowly and carefully handmade, in my studio in Sheridan, Wyoming. Because of this, each piece is unique and may contain the slight imperfections that you would expect with a handcrafted item. Perfectly imperfect!
+ As with all handmade jewelry, please be mindful to take care of it. It should not be worn in the shower, while cleaning, during strenuous activities such as sports, or in the water.
+ Sun, heat, lotions and chemicals can affect stones negatively. Clean silver (not stones) with a gentle polishing cloth, especially for jewelry (Sunshine polishing cloth is recommended and included with your purchase).
