gemstone drop earrings - amethyst
These lovely teardrop shapes are the most popular in my range. They are made of brass that has been darkened to an antique finish. They hang from darkened sterling silver ear hooks.
The teardrop is 18mm x 13mm base holds a polished purple amethyst gemstone in the most pretty translucent purple with beautiful inclusions.
Each pair will vary slightly but each pair is beautiful and unique.
I've soldered the base below an open teardrop loop that functions as the jumpring to hang the earwire from but also adds a nice length to the earring.
They are then set into the brass teardrop which has undergone some love - I've soldered on the loop which has been handcut, it is then pickled, tumbled to a polish and then dipped in liver of sulpher to patina / darken.
The picture on the model is a different color but the same size so will give you the idea of how it hangs.
