These sterling silver herringbone wire wrapped earrings showcase, Chinese turquoise combined with antique African trade beads. The trade beads used are both Venetian made, over 100 years old, and include a 5mm green chevron bead, and a blue, red, and white striped aja bead measuring 7mm x 3mm. The turquoise bead measures 6mm. These beads are wire wrapped with sterling silver wire, using a technique called herringbone weave. The earrings are suspended from my hand forged and hammered sterling silver circle earwires. The total earring length is 1 3/4 inches long. Rubber stoppers are included for added security, so you don't have to worry about losing your beautiful new earrings.
