Each derived from the same stone.
The moon is rising; a time lapsed view of sorts.
Wrapped in fine silver and set on a sterling backplate, these modern earrings have a swooping ear wire as to try and replicate the curvature of the stones. Sterling detailing hug the stones in certain areas.
The back plates of these earrings have been oxidized using a traditional non-toxic time consuming method. The moons have been hand etched.
These stones measure approximately 1 inch in length by 0.5 inches wide. The total front drop of the earring is about 1.5 inches. The total swooping back drop is about 1.85 inches in length.
This is handmade and one of a kind. I have created this in an eco-friendly manner — from hand with no harsh jewelers chemicals and no power tools.
The old fashioned way, using recycled silver.
Thus, it has taken me a considerable amount of time compared to using other modern jewelry techniques. Therefore, file marks, as well as asymmetries are all part of the hand-fashioned process.
** PLEASE NOTE: I can not make changes to sizing or oxidation preferences once a piece is complete; I am not set up to do so. How my items show here is the final product. Because of my power tool-free ways, and lack of traditional jewelers chemicals in my process, this piece is sold as you see it here. **
So beautiful. The stone is like a dreamy landscape that's so peaceful to look at. I love how this artist puts the moon and/or sun behind it. really sets off the piece. I definitely will be back to buy more pieces! And the the shipping was so lightning fast!!!!
