Tourmalines

colorful earrings

made of tiny little tourmaline rondelles & faceted pear-shaped stones,
along with pale green amethyst (prasiolite), the larger stones

a simple little design,
 but one which takes HOURS to make because everything is hand-done,
& each piece is added individually.




this pair will be our "go-by" piece as it's  made in sterling...

& I believe using 14k goldfilled will be just so much more opulent & beautiful.

the finished product will have lever-backs & will be thinner, more linear
& hang about 1" long.

what do you guys think?

  3. Gorgeous, Marsha!
    I can't believe I gave away all of my aunts stones from her vintage jewelry. She had jewelry boxes full.
    My ex-husband's ex-wife (haha) wanted them, because she was trying her hand at jewelry making.
    Happy Thursday.

  9. Marsha, These earrings are exquisite and unique which is what I always look for in pieces for my jewelry collection. They are reminiscent of clusters of baby grapes reaching out for the shimmer of the sunshine. I just may have to put them on my birthday wish list. I love your daily posts searching them out in my onslaught of emails each day....as I mentioned to you in a previous email, your blog is my daily truffle....it is an inspiring little sweet treat that I savor slowly, allowing me to remember what is beautiful, cultivated, and inspiring....in the midst of what might otherwise be a chaotic, whirly twirly day.
    PS> My sister received the beautiful beaded necklace that I ordered from Splenderosa for her birthday. She loves it and cannot stop commenting on the blue shades of the beads.....She plans to wear it all summer with t shirts, sundresses and black at night.
    Hugs and Kisses and Appreciation......Jacqueline Heil
