Well, here they are, my first offering of earrings with bezel-set stones! An exquisite, one-of-a-kind pair of Amazon Valley jasper cabochons comes from the lapidary workshop of Gary Wilson of Tucson. I fell in love with these and have never seen anything else like them. The colors and details are so rich, and they've been given a very high polish to bring them out.

My bezels are understated, with a little notching along the sides to add texture. They were hand-polished to a soft satin shine. The patina is just marvelous...I couldn't believe how perfectly the colors matched those of the stones. The long 20 gauge ear wires were soldered to the backs.

This is just the sort of clean, understated setting that I'm finally learning to create for all of the stones and objects that have been waiting in the wings of my studio. Because the underlying look of my work is meant to be primal and low-tech, I balked for a long time at learning to solder, but clearly this is an example of how such a fabricated setting can work without looking overly-clever or technical. These earrings look amazing when worn, and are fun to hold, too...they're so coherent-feeling somehow. A true pair of desert beauties!

Size: 2 7/8" long. The silver bezels with stones are 1" x 3/4" x 1/8".

Care: Wash with plain lukewarm water and hand dry. Do not scrub. If polishing, use a silver polishing cloth around the very edges only, in order to avoid destroying the patina.

Stonelands will arrive giftwrapped in a hand decorated box, along with a handwritten descriptive label.
