Grey and Violet Earrings
The stones on these newest artisan earrings are simply gorgeous! For posts I created sterling silver flowers with Rhodolite, a type of garnet, cabochon centers. Rhodolite has a lovely red-purple shade and picks up on the purple shadows at the base of the larger stones.
Zebra Hickoryite is from a fairly new mine in Mexico that has already been tapped out. I was lucky to purchase a couple sets of cabochons and will keep looking as I think it's beautiful. Lovely medium grey with lines of white and purple in this pair. I used a fancy bezel that allows as much of the stone to show as I could and capture it safely.
Sterling Silver surgical pad backs for stability. They are about 1.5 inches from the post to the bottom of the Hickoryite
