These earrings feature hanging tassels of Natural Lapis Lazuli that have been faceted and turned into tiny beads. I have strung them onto silver wire that allows them to move creating a gleam and flash in the light as they swing. This one-of-a-kind pair are hanging below a hand-sawn forget-me-not double flower created and framed in silver. Each earring has hand-cut with a tiny sawblade and therefore the earrings are slightly unique and never perfectly matched, the flowers also have some texture and markings.
These beauties are rather light and elegant, and I hope will become part of your favourite go-to sets of earrings.
The finish on the silver metal has been oxidised (blackened) and then lightly polished but left with a satin shine.
The ear hooks are also hand-fabricated from sterling silver.
From the top of the ear-wire to the base of the discs these earrings measure 85mm and the width approximately 14mm. The gauge (thickness) of the silver is 2mm – making these lightweight, but durable.
Made with lots of love, heart and soul.
These are ‘ready to go’ so please enjoy prompt shipping!
RGSilver products always come packaged, which is also perfect for gift giving.
The earrings also have my Makers Mark and a Sterling Silver 925 Hallmark on the reverse of one of the pairs.
Lapis Lazuli or lapis for short, is a deep-blue metamorphic rock used as a semi-precious stone that has been prized since antiquity for its intense colour. This lapis was mined at the ancient deposits of Afghanistan. Found in limestone in the Kokcha River valley of Badakhshan province in north-eastern Afghanistan, where the Sar-e-Sang mine deposits have been worked for more than 6,000 years.
