Bold & striking, yet wonderfully lightweight, these genuine jet & natural amber earrings feature our hand cut "tabbies" of deep, velvety black jet. The night of jet is combined with the sun of natural Baltic amber nuggets in what from ancient times was referred to as the "magical marriage". These two ancient materials perfectly combine the energies of day & night, sunlight & darkness, male & female, life & death, all in harmony. The jet & amber are held to each other in a bind of oxidized sterling wire wrap & little copper twist spacers face the jet tabs.
These elegant earrings measure 2 & 3/8" (6.01 cm) in total length, including their hand formed, oxidized sterling ear wires. In weight, they are a mere 0.09 oz, or 2.5 grams (per earring)...a single U.S. penny weighs the same.
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. You can absolutely find cheaper, mass-produced, sweat-shop made stone beads & carvings.But, if you appreciate the natural energy a stone holds, why not treat yourself to truly one of a kind pieces in which that energy has been respected & built upon!
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!
