Earthy elegant wire wrapped jade earrings, these one of a kind lovelies include our own hand cut gemstone tabs. The little stone slabs of silky green neprite jade are faced with antiqued copper star flowers, then bound in an intricate wrapping of oxidized copper wire, full of curves & spirals. The stone is a favorite of ours, smooth, translucent & fine grained, with a freckling of black inclusions.
The earrings measure 1.75" (4.44 cm) in total length, including their hand formed, oxidized sterling ear wires. In weight, they are 0.175 oz, or 4.9 grams (per earring)...2 U.S. dimes weigh 4.5 grams.
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!
