Two colorful pieces of Garden Quartz wrapped in fine silver bezels. Set on oxidized sterling silver sheet and surrounded by two stacked layers of sterling silver wire. Handmade sterling silver earrings wires.
Garden quartz is (one of) the most magical stones in the world to me. It is in fact quartz which usually is a clear mineral but this stone has multi-colored mineral inclusions. It’s also known as included quartz or lodolite. So the colors you see inside this stone that often resemble moss are actually little minerals that have formed inside of the quartz! I patina (darken) the metal below the stone so any of the clear quartz parts are darkened which really helps illuminate all the different colors and patterns of the minerals.
Approximate dimensions: 1 inch long
A good pair of earrings is my cheat code to feeling confident. I love how quickly a pretty pair of earrings can dress up an outfit and just make you feel stylish even if you’re just in athletic-wear. If I wear one piece of jewelry it’s always going to be earrings. I can wear them when I’m rock climbing, out to a nice dinner or even just running errands around town. It’s the number one thing people notice and compliment first. My goal for every pair of earrings I make is for them to be lightweight so you can wear them all day long and for them to bring you an extra dose of confidence.
Each piece of jewelry I make is made entirely by me in my home studio in Salt Lake City, Utah. I use traditional metalsmithing techniques meaning I cut, saw, solder, file, form + polish everything by hand (and torch!) While I may continuously bring certain styles back no two stones are ever identical so your piece is truly one-of-a-kind and meant for you.
