These remind me of the wild grapes that vine through the trees and hedgerows around my house. By early autumn, half ripe clusters of fruit appear in similar shades of purple and green.

Each earring, comprised of a cluster of wire-wrapped pearls, hangs from my very own handmade sterling silver french hook. They are well balanced, light weight, and comfortable to wear.

Overall length is 1 1/4".

I have a personal affinity for pearls as they are one of my birthstones. And who doesn't love a simple, elegant strand of perfectly round and luminous pearls? They're so timeless and classic!

The pearls I prefer to use in my designs are cultured from freshwater mussels. The resulting gems are more uniquely shaped than their saltwater cousins, often more oblong than round and displaying a variety of interesting bumps and ridges.

They have also been permanently dyed in much the same process as cotton or wool. This makes them really fun to work with and takes away some of the formality normally associated with pearls. You can still dress them up, but they're funky enough to wear "just because".

For happy pearls, please remove them prior to bathing or swimming, especially in chlorinated water.

These earrings come beautifully gift boxed whether they're a treat for you or destined for someone special.
