Small Nuggets of Green Turquoise Earrings in Dark Patina Copper, Turquoise Pebble Earrings



Little chunks of North American Turquoise are wire wrapped in copper wire and suspended from artistically handcrafted copper earrings. These small turquoise nuggets are a bit on the greener side of the turquoise color range, perfect with the darkened copper setting. A very natural looking and rustic pair of turquoise pebble earrings, these beauties would make an excellent gift for the woman who loves real turquoise jewelry. These rustic earrings, set in copper, would be a thoughtful 7th wedding anniversary gift. Pebble earrings are great for everyday wear, and in this way, she'll think on your married adventures whenever she's wearing her turquoise earrings.

  • Genuine turquoise, stabilized for bead cutting
  • Turquoise nuggets are approximately 8-10mm (about 3/8 inch) irregular somewhat angular pebbles
  • Green turquoise stones
  • Handcrafted in solid copper and given a dark brown polished patina
  • 1 3/8 inches long from the top of the ear hooks

For these earrings, I sorted through my collection of genuine turquoise beads for nuggets that were a good match in color and approximate size. Nuggets are just that, free form irregular chunks of stone, so earring pairs are never a perfect match. This makes for a fun and free spirited pair of earrings that truly celebrates the essence of the particular stone. I set these greenish nuggets in copper, the metal;s dark patina complements and grounds the stones. The handcrafted ear hooks have a simple drop adorned with a slight spiral at the hanging loop. This suspension seems to disappear, and the green nuggets seem to dance in the air next to your ears.

Enjoy these copper and turquoise earrings any day with nearly any wardrobe choice - except for perhaps the most olive-leaning greens.
