In this version of my Isla Earrings, I mixed rich purple amethyst with magenta topaz, crimson red garnet, light pink mystic quartz and oxidized sterling silver. I hand wrapped the magenta topaz drops with fine silver wire and then suspended them from bezel set amethyst coins. Cascading down the magenta topaz drops are a mix of vibrant gemstone rondelles - amethyst, garnet, mystic pink quartz - all hand wrapped on my handmade fine silver head pins. The earrings swing from handmade sterling silver ear wires. I roughed up the surface of the vermeil bezel and oxidized it and all the silver for an aged look. After oxidizing the silver, I lightly hand buffed it for added detail.
These earrings are approximately 2 1/8 inches long including the 14kt gold fill ear wires.
