Deliciously boho tribal, these pipestone wheel earrings feature hand cut disc tabs of natural catlinite (aka pipestone). Pipestone is a type of argillite (metamorphosed mudstone). We combined the quartzite speckled, earthy red discs with faceted rondelles of rich, golden tiger eye & honey colored Baltic amber. Next, the beads & discs are bound together with oxidized copper wire wrap. Silver heishi & twist rings add more detail. Finally, the earrings hang on hand formed, oxidized sterling ear wires.
These earthy elegant earrings measure 2.25" (6.35 cm) in total length, including their ear wires. In weight, they are 0.2 oz, or 5.6 grams (per earring). A U.S. quarter also weighs 5.6 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!
