These handmade artisan earrings feature African turquoise stones combined with hand fabricated sterling silver shapes. Earthy and modern - with a subtle tribal vibe - these earrings will add a touch of artsy sophistication to everyday wear.

I designed the shapes, sawed them out of solid sterling silver sheet, and then hammered and stamped them to create the texture. The silver was given a soft charcoal patina, and then buffed and polished to enhance the detail.

Although commonly known as African turquoise, this stone is a natural jasper found in Africa. It has a matrix structure similar to turquoise -- with earthy hues of blue, green, brown and rust.

MEASUREMENTS:
Total length: 2-5/8” from top of sterling silver ear wires and 7/8" at widest point. They are signed on the back with my initials and sterling stamp.

These earrings have a matching necklace which is sold separately: www.silverandearth.com/product/sterling-silver-pendant-necklace-african-turquoise-stone-handmade-silver-jewelry

NOTE: Please refer to measurements above. Photos are enlarged to show details.

All of my jewelry is my own original design and handcrafted by me in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA.
