Natural bright blue lapis lazuli with flecks of gold minerals is cut as little hearts and these dangle from richly textured handmade sterling silver hoop earrings. I handmade forms 1” in diameter, forge them to become sturdy shapes, then bind them in fiber sterling wire to capture
small sterling beads.
The textured hoops are oxidized, buffed and then tumbled for strength and shine. The small (5/16" or 8 mm) natural lapis hearts are wire wrapped in oxidized sterling and attached to dangle from the hoops. Including the stone heart dangle, the total length is just about 1 1/2" measured from the top of the hoop.
Lapis lazuli, long a beloved naturally blue stone, often has flecks of golden pyrite flitting through it. This shade of blue, like blue jeans, is perfect for heart lovers that want something different from a pink or red heart! I just love the iconic heart shape and although Valentine's day might emphasize hearts--I think they are wonderful just about any time.
A limited edition, each pair is made to order.
Packed into my signature box, all ready to give (or keep!) A precious, original pair of earrings to give to someone special or to wear and save as an heirloom.

These earrings are very pretty. The lapis is a little smaller than I had hoped and they have popped out a few times but I like them!
