Hubei Turquoise and Handmade Copper Bead Earrings


Hubei Turquoise and Handmade Copper Bead Earrings - I am continuing my journey with turquoise! These earrings feature gorgeous deeply and richly colored Green / Blue / Brown turquoise nuggets from the Hubei Turquoise Mine in China. I topped these earthy nuggets with hand made bead caps to which I have added a touch of hand stamping. A pretty hammered sterling silver bead and copper wire complete the drop. The turquoise drop has been wire wrapped to one of my hand stamped, hollow copper beads - I used the same stamp for continuity.

These beautiful gemstone earrings measure just over 3"  in length from the top of my hand forged, solid sterling silver wires to the bottom of the earring. I have wrapped a single, solid copper bead to the ear wire to complete this mixed metal design. 

I have added an aged patina to all the metals, and buffed by hand to bring out all the details in the sterling silver and copper metals.

All metals used in this design are solid copper and .925 sterling silver.

Jewelry is made using traditional metalworking techniques, including soldering, filing, sanding, texturing, polishing, and tumbling in my home studio. Jewelry comes wrapped in a cotton-lined gift box and ships quickly. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.


NOTE: 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these earrings will be donated to Miracle Horse Rescue, a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for helping me help those who cannot help themselves!
