gemstone drop earrings - blue lapiz
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 hooks.
The teardrop is 18mm x 13mm base holds a polished blue lapiz gemstone in the most vibrant deep cobalt blue ~ wow color pop!
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.
This ring will be made to order so will take 3-5 days.
Picture on a model to come soon.
