Copper Tube Earrings with Pink and Moss Green Stones, Pinky Jasper and Green Garnet Earrings in dark Copper

$24.00

Sweet drop earrings are made with copper tubes and pink and mossy green natural stones. These delightfully simple handcrafted earrings are like small pendulum drops terminated with a disk of pinky "jasper" and a faceted olive or mossy green garnet. The stone and copper dangle swings from handcrafted pure copper ear hooks in a graceful long-tailed style. I treated the copper metal to a rich, dark, almost black antiqued finish that keeps the stones looking earthy even though they are pink and green.

Many stones are called "jasper" in the bead trade and I'm sorry, but I don't know if "pinky jasper" is jasper or not. What I can say is that the stones used here are interesting: dusty rose in color, cut into relatively thin discs, and with a waxed finish that is soft and warm. Here and there the pink stones are spotted with greyish or white areas and even specks of olive or moss green. The combination of dusty rose jasper and moss green garnet is very pleasing. I like how the green stone has a bit of translucence that, along with the faceted surface, brings some light and sparkle to the earthy copper and pinky jasper.

These lovingly handcrafted earrings measure 1.875-inches long (48mm).
