I love this new dragonfly design that I came up with! I am calling these "skimmer" earrings. This is a rather large pair of earrings but still light in weight. They are 2 1/2" total length (with the ear wires) and 1 1/2" wide. I used 8 by 10 mm oval turquoise cabochons for the body and 4 mm black onyx and turquoise beads for the "tail". All fabricated by hand in my own studio. The hammered and pierced sterling "wings" have an oxidized and then polished finish. I used fine silver bezel wire to set the stones and I used 20 gauge sterling wire for the simply handcrafted earwires. I include clear plastic earwire stoppers so you won’t lose these earrings when you wear them (not shown).

On the back of one earring is stamped their name, "Blue Skimmer”, and on the other earring my Wood Thrush Studio makers mark (a "W", the likeness of a wood thrush bird and a "T") and a sterling hallmark.

I prefer Paypal or credit card payment but I do accept personal checks or money orders. There will be a 2 week wait for personal checks to be cleared. I ship using first class US Postal Service.

(((Commissioning a similar set of earrings? I made this pair of earrings with turquoise but I have many, many other 8mm by 10mm oval stones in other colors - please go to this page:
to see photos of stones to choose from for a commissioned pair of earrings with different stones. Earrings with different stones may be priced higher or lower - please contact me before ordering so I can make you a listing with the correct price. I will be able to find beads for the tail to match the stone you pick, and will send you a photo of them before I start. A commissioned pair of earrings will be finished in 2 weeks time. A commissioned item will be very similar to the item shown, but since it will be handmade there may be slight variances)))
