Botswana Agate (12 mm) in deep plum hues coupled with an opaque purple stone and an Austrian crystal it is dressed in sterling silver and hangs about two inches. I like to think of this as a lovely lavendar pair for $10.00. Email for purchasing particulars.
Eagle's Eye (16mm large) what a fascinating stone. The veins of color run through with so much shine. I see blues, greys, reds and golds yet it is so neutral it could be worn with almost anything. The copper topper and fresh water pearl dyed in bronze dress it up beautifully. The ear wire is sterling silver for comfort and this pair is priced at $10.00 a value not to be missed by the discriminating buyer. Email for purchase details.
The large stone (16mm) is called Eagle's Eye. It has the shine and brilliance of Tiger or Cat's Eye but the coloring is really interesting. Veins of gold, rust and blackish blue run through this multi-grey stone. It is fascinating to look at. The smaller (8mm) faceted stone above is a smoky quartz. Everything is dressed in sterling silver and the whole earring hangs just slightly below 2" on the ear. I love this pair and it will be hard to part with. It is neutral and can be worn with just about anything. They are fairly light on the ear lobe that I find them extremely comfortable. This pair is a steal at $10.00 and sure to please.
The leaf is pewter but everything else metal is sterling silver. The beads are labradorite. The pin that the labradorite is hanging on I hammered into swirls for a fun effect. They hang just under three inches. If you are not familiar with labradorite read my article posted 7/29/08. It is hands down one of my favorite stones because of its naturally occurring chatoyance. Those that are familiar start out with one piece and end up with many. This pair is $15.00 and a tremendous bargain because these earrings took a lot work and the silver combined with the pewter leaf make them substantial to say the very least. Email for details on purchasing.
