Let your spirit feel the calming sea garden as you wear your earthly and rustic seaside garden earrings. I found these amazing Peruvian Blue Opals and just fell head over heals in love. Had to have them and went right to the metal work bench. I bezeled the stones and glass cabs in a rustic metal style setting. Looks a bit seaside and calm to me. Very relaxing yet rustic in a good way.
I found these treasure cab stones and loved the color scheme of browns, turquoise, seafoam greens, ambers and sand. You rarely find such soothing turquoise colors in Peruvian Blue Opals so I was none the less one happy gal. For some reason they just melt me into a comfortable place together. I added some hand fused turquoise/sea foam green glass cabs to accent the stones nicely.
The large center focals on the earrings are Peruvian Blue Opal stones hand ground and polished. Then I hand fused the glass cabochons in my kiln. The stones are set into reclaimed/recycled sterling silver hand cut bezeled setting then soldered together. The earrings have been oxidized to give them the worn earthy feeling of a vitage piece. I added a sterling silver daisy and gold center nugget stone.
I've been working long hours on this piece but the end results really make me smile!
Most of the sterling silver metal used was reclaimed silver I hand melted, rolled and put some sweat and heart into. I also signed the piece on the back of the earrings
Earrings measure 40mm from top glass cab to bottom of daisy and are 21mm wide at widest part of setting.
