Graceful, organic shapes like blue wings in these hand cut lapis & turquoise earrings. The natural lapis stone, it's rich blue spangled with pyrite inclusion, is hand cut & polished in the Elksong studio. We'd paired the earthy tabs with little stacks of brown, green & robin's egg blue turquoise rondelles & bound everything together with oxidized sterling wire wrap. On the faces of the lapis tabs, elegant, detailed little verdigris copper dragonflies rest.
The length of these one of a kind earrings is 2.5" (6.35 cm) in total, including their hand formed, oxidized sterling ear wires. In weight, they are 0.17 oz, or about 5 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!
