Handmade

Material

Gemstone: Amethyst

These gemstone earrings bring together carnelian, amethyst, and malachite beads in an earthy stack-designed pair of handmade dangles. All the metal used here is sterling silver, and includes the earrings pins, bead caps, rondelle spacers, and earring hooks. Together all these elements make a fun, pretty pair of dangles for casual wear.

These earrings were inspired by my memories of my older sister's jewelry, particularly a bracelet that had various kinds of stones in it. While playing with my beads recently, I put carnelian, amethyst, and malachite together on a whim, and voila! I remembered the bracelet I had so envied my sister for. I decided to go with earrings first, and made these fun dangles.

They are designed with a carnelian round bead (8mm) at the bottom of the dangle, then a faceted amethyst round (6mm), and finally a smaller malachite round (4mm). The carnelian receives the royal treatment with two small-petalled sterling bead caps. The sterling rondelles are used between the beads and at the very bottom. The silver pins are given a triple wire wrap at the very top.

The earrings hooks come with clear ear stoppers (or ear guards), to provide more security when the dangles are worn. The sterling mark for the hooks is on the rear wire.

The length here is approximately 1 3/4 inches. Please see my photos for a measurement picture showing the earrings alongside a ruler.

Colorful, fun, and earthy, these gemstone earrings with carnelian, amethyst, and malachite were made by me with care, thought, and best wishes for their destined wearer. They come on PrettyGonzo cards (also shown my photos) and in a nice organza bag, all ready for gift giving—perhaps to yourself!

About the Gemstones

Carnelian -
A type of chalcedony and member of the quartz family, carnelian is a rich and regal-looking gemstone that has been used for jewelry since ancient times. Throughout history, it has been considered a protective talisman to dispel fear and help build courage. Carnelian is also associated with August as a birthstone and with the astrological sign of Virgo.

Amethyst -
A member of the quartz family, amethyst is traditionally considered a protective, talismanic stone. The name amethyst comes from the Greek word "amethusos," which means "not drunk." The gemstone is associated with the crown chakra, and is the birthstone for February. Amethysts are actually crystals and often have inclusions, clouding, and other interesting elements to them, as well as various shadings of their distinctive purple color.

Malachite -
This gemstone, as the other two, has been treasured and used for jewelry since ancient times. It was especially valued in Greece, Rome, and Egypt. It also ornamented amulets and statues, and was even ground into powder for use as eye shadow. Malachite's name may have come from the Greek "malache," which means mallow (a green plant). This mineral was also popular in medieval times as a talisman to protect its wearer against the evil eye. Perhaps malachite has attracted so much attention over the ages because of its green coloration, which always varies and suggests nature and growth.

I like to ship quickly, usually 1 or 2 days after payment unless it's a weekend or holiday. Please ensure your shipping address is current.

U.S. ORDERS: I ship USPS First Class w/Tracking. If you want to purchase insurance or upgrade, please contact me.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: After many years of shipping internationally, I am temporarily ceasing such shipments.

However, if you live outside the U.S. and would like to buy something, contact me. I will do what I can to help. Be aware that any tariffs, customs fees, and surcharges are paid by the buyer.

Note that shipping is now very costly for USPS First Class International, which is what I would normally use. Also, if you live in the EU, I do not have GDPR policies at the moment.
I sincerely want you to be happy with your purchase.

Returns are accepted if you contact me within 7 days after delivery to you. I expect to receive the item no later than 2 weeks after delivery. If this timeframe is problematic for you, contact me before buying. Also, I do allow extensions for special holidays such as Christmas and Valentine's Day, as some people buy early, me included!

For All Items: I will refund for the purchase price minus original shipping cost.

You are responsible for return shipping with tracking (U.S.). Items should be in their original condition, with the original wrapping and packing materials. Extra items, like jewelry cards, gift bags, boxes, freebies, should be included.
Non-receipt: I will do my very best to help you if items go astray. Tracking provides information on the item's routing to its destination, and I always ship directly from the post office rather than relying on postal pick-up. Again, please be sure that your shipping address is CURRENT.

Damage: I pack orders well to minimize any problem in this area. However, if your purchase arrives damaged, contact me immediately. I will do my very best to help.
I accept PayPal and Etsy Payments. Please be aware that even if you are not a member of PayPal, you can securely use it to pay for your purchase with a major credit card.

Payment must be made within 24 hours of purchase or the order will be cancelled.

To Rhode Islanders: Sorry to say, but by law I must apply 7% sales tax to your purchase and pass it on to "the governor."

Buyers from other states may also be charged state sales tax. In this case, your tax payment is determined and handled by Etsy, not me.
Yes, I am always happy to accept a custom order! Whether or not I require a deposit, full amount, or neither will depend on the nature of the order. I have done a number of such orders elsewhere with no deposit or purchase required, as I knew I could simply add those items to my inventory if the customer decided not to purchase. (Customers always did purchase them, though.) I always show photos of custom orders to the customer.
If you are buying a gift for someone and have used that person's address for shipping, please let me know at the time of ordering - I will be happy to include a complimentary notecard in which is written whatever message you would like to send.

Of course, I am always happy to send to that person's address. Just please make sure it is CURRENT. Thank you!
