Your vibe attracts your tribe. These bohemian earrings help define your own funky sense of style. They are made with hand cut irregular lapis triangular beads placed on sterling pins and suspended from my own handmade sterling earwires with another touch of awesome: small perfect spirals to make these a really fun pair of earrings. I used wire that was too big for the beads and had to enlarge. Every. Hole. Tedious, so my next pair will use a slightly finer wire. I learn. And there will never be another pair just like this.

Lapis lazuli is an ancient gem. Egyptian cultures buried lapis stones with their dead to offer protection and it was also used as a symbol of truth. Early cultures valued lapis lazuli more highly than gold. Greeks spoke of an ancient sapphire which was included with gold, and this was unmistakenly lapis. Some believed that dreaming of lapis would foretell love that would be forever faithful. Lapis Lazuli has high intensity and can open many of the chakra centers. It is one of the most powerful stones and should be used with care.

The earrings, however, could be worn every day. If you like the arrow style, but don't want to spend as much, I have made several more pairs with plainer earwires and slightly thinner sterling silver wire. WAY easier for me. I spent too much time reaming out the bead holes on this pair and do not intend to repeat the process. I have not listed them yet, but they are just 13.20. Let me know if you would like to see these or would like me to set up a listing for you.

Ready to ship in a nice gift box complete with tag. They can be oxidized, but I like the shiny silver with the intense dark blue with gold streaks. Trendy but unique.

They are 1 3/4" long and the widest lapis beads are about 3/8".

An occasional soak in warm soapy water (yes, except for soft/porous stones like turquoise, they are safe for showering, too!) will keep your item looking new, as will daily wear, which inhibits tarnish. For orders $25+ I also include a small polishing cloth which can be used on dry pieces until it is completely black.

For shiny jewelry, I use a silver dip product for polishing. Just dip and then rinse in water. This will not remove black lettering.

If the text lightens (common inside of bracelets), fill in the letters with a Sharpie. Best hack ever! Wipe off the excess ink while it is still wet and sand off remaining residue to make the lettering pop again. I include sanding paper in every stamped bracelet order.
Exact wrist size is important for my bracelets! A 7-inch bracelet only works on a 6.75 inch wrist if it is chain. One with 1-inch beads that is 7" long may only fit a 5" wrist. So please send your exact wrist circumference if you are ordering a bracelet and want to love it a long time!
