Rhyolite Necklace and Earrings Set


Rhyolite Necklace and Earrings Set - The more I shop for beads, the more I become enamored by the myriad of colors available! These are gorgeous Rhyolite gemstones, a volcanic, ingenous rock. The stone's mossy greens are reminiscent of a rainforest. But, what intrigued me the most was the pop of yellows and oranges! I paired these oval and round beads with tiny sterling silver beads. The center, focal is a handcrafted bead from Tibet - a creamy orange resin flanked with silver caps -- just the punch I needed to highlight the natural orange tones in the Rhyolite. 

Not heavy to wear, the necklace measures 25" in length and fastens with a simple hook and eye clasp that I forged from sterling silver. I have added a simple pair of earrings to this listing, comprised of two of the 12mm coin shaped Rhyolite Beads and sterling silver.  The earrings hang securely from sterling silver leverback-style ear wires and measure 1 1/2" in length.

The gemstones are truly gorgeous - please be sure to zoom in on the photos!

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!
