In the blue dusk, dragonflies flit over darkening water under the colors of twilight sky...these hand cut lapis & dragonfly earrings are one of a kind! They start with deep blue, natural lapis gemstone, loaded with pyrite shimmer, hand cut & polished in the Elksong Jewelry studio. Next the lapis tabs are faced with delicate, greenish copper dragonfly charms. Finally the tabs are topped with a sunset mix of colorful gemstone beads..sultry carnelian, greenish turquoise discs & little hand cut bright turquoise heishi. All the elements are bound together with oxidized sterling wire wrap & hang from hand formed, oxidized sterling ear wires. Earrings to dream in....
These earrings measure 2 & 1/8" (5.38 cm) in total length, including the ear wires. In weight, they are 0.16 oz, or 4.6 grams (per earring)...2 U.S. dimes weigh in at 4.6 grams, as well.
Our hand cut gemstone beads & carvings are made by us, in our studio, one at a time with love, patience, energy and attention to detail.

Our stone earring tabs are fabricated carefully & skillfully, but please handle them with a bit of care. Excessively rough handling or dropping them on a hard surface could cause possible chipping or breakage. They are natural stone & Nature can be fragile!
