We have several different types of rough jade we use for cutting material & this earthy "seafoam" jade is a favorite. With a core of rich, translucent green & a pale green/black flecked "rind", it's like slices of some strange fruit. The stone tab earrings combine the jade with rustic, matte finish black Czech glass "pebble" beads, ornate ethnic style silvery facers & oxidized copper wire wrap.
These unique earrings measure 2 & 3/8" (6.01 cm) in total length, including their hand formed, oxidized sterling ear wires. In weight, they are 0.2 oz, or 5.8 grams (per earring)...a U.S. quarter weighs 5.6 grams, for comparison.
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!
