My friend Koko is a former jewelry designer in her 80s from Japan. When friends and relatives from Japan visit her here, Koko asks that they bring her a particular type of jade that she believes has rare qualities of healing, as well as superior color and luminosity. I was lucky enough to be given several of Koko's jade beads, and the two I've used in these earrings are tiny but SO lovely. Combined with my grandmother-in-law's heirloom clear glass nuggets (cut glass from England, c.1900ish), speckled "raindrop" gossamer beads, and tiny coppery Czech crystals, the jade beads' energy is almost palpable and certainly beautiful. These are small but mighty earrings, and I guarantee they can be worn well by women of all ages, all sizes, and all tastes.

At the base of the earrings are lustrous gossamer glass beads: These slightly metallic beads are lightly speckled -- I call them "my raindrop beads" because, well, they look just like raindrops on leaves, reflecting earth and sky. Balanced upon them are vintage/heirloom clear glass nuggets that belonged to my late grandmother-in-law. Re-purposed sterling silver saucer beads are next, topped with Koko's 5mm jade balls (you'll find that your eyes are drawn to them time and time again!). Small (3mm) peachy Czech crystals with copper mirroring sit upon the jade balls. The earrings are finished on top with 2mm silver balls.

These earrings measure 3/4" bead-to-bead, and they hang 1-1/2 inches from surgical steel flattened fishhook ear wires.*

Your earrings will be accompanied by a handmade card that describes the beads & wires. Gift wrapping is free, and we are happy to send your present directly to the recipient, along with your note on a handmade card. Be sure to convo us the details (incl. mailing address and your message) at checkout.

*Surgical steel is generally well-tolerated by those with sensitive ears or allergies. We carry a variety of ear wire types (e.g. sterling silver, 14k gold/gold-filled, copper) and styles (e.g. leverbacks, kidney wires, French hoops). If you prefer a different type of ear wire, please convo us prior to ordering. A small charge may apply for some styles.
