Cool green & pure earthy elegance, these hand cut nephrite jade tab earrings combine oxidized copper & sterling with natural stone. The nephrite jade is hand cut & polished in the Elksong Jewelry studio...the translucent, silky stone is one of our favorites! The tabs are paired with ornate, oxidized copper beads, very textural & unique. Copper twist rings & tiny silver heishi face the tabs & everything is bound together with oxidized sterling wire wrapping.
The earrings measure 2.25" (5.71 cm) in total length, including their hand formed, oxidized sterling ear wires. In weight, they are 0.18 oz, or 5.1 grams (per earring)....2 U.S. pennies weigh 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!
