Lantern earrings with Labradorite gemstones
sterling silver charms- in stock and ready to ship*

Light the way in these Lantern earrings.

In your light I learn how to love.
In your beauty, how to make poems.
~Rumi, trans. by Coleman Barks

Quality craftsmanship is very important to me, so is the look and feel of each piece. How the jewelry moves and hangs, its size and weight, and how it feels to the touch, are all considered when I design and make each piece. Whether you are purchasing jewelry for yourself or to give as a gift, you are investing in something that is meant to be loved and cherished for a long time to come.

part of the Modern Woods collection

~PROCESS & MATERIALS~
I use traditional metalsmithing techniques are used to fabricate these earrings. I cut the disks from a sheet of recycled sterling silver then gently shape them to form a slight cup. I form the hoops with sterling silver wire. To make the charms feel worn and weathered, I hammer and distress them, then file and sand the edges smooth. The gemstones are strung and wrapped to hang from the disks. To give the earrings a soft antique finish, I oxidize them and polish them by hand.

~MEASUREMENTS~
the top of the earwire to the bottom of the charm measures 1 7/8" long,
earrings are 5/8" at the widest point

~PACKAGING~
Your purchase will come beautifully packaged, ready for giving. The box and filler are 100% recycled and made in the USA.

For the most accurate size go to any jewelry counter for a measurement. It is helpful to measure for the width of the ring as well as the diameter. If you know the width of the ring band for the ring you'd like, be sure to tell the person doing the measurement. You may measure a size 7 for a ring with a thin band, but a 7 1/2 or 8 for a ring with a wide band.
1. Measure your wrist just below the wrist bone, where one would normally wear a bracelet, with a flexible measuring tape or a strip of paper.

2. If you are using a plain strip of paper, measure it with a ruler to determine your wrist size.

3. Add 1/4" to 1" (average is 1/2") to your wrist size, depending on whether you would like a snug, comfort, or loose fit. This is the ideal bracelet length for you.
The following are necklace lengths we offer, and where they fall on the average female. If you are interested in other lengths, just ask.

16" Wraps loosely around the neck, also known as a choker.

18" Sits at the collar bone, the most common length, known as a princess necklace, Even though it is longer than a choker, the necklace sits close to the neck. If the necklace has a charm, it will lie above the breast bone.

20" Sits just below the collar bone, but above the neckline. Referred to as a matinee.

Men’s styles may require a longer chain. We recommend 20" or 22" as standard chain lengths for men.
All of our pieces are made using sterling silver, bronze, and 14k gold that have been oxidized for an aged appearance and given a satin finish. Over time, metals will naturally darken.

To restore the luster of your jewelry use the polishing pad included with your purchase, or a soft felt polishing cloth like Sunshine, and gently rub the piece.

Please do not use liquid, gel, or other natural cleaners on your jewelry. Doing so may remove the aged finish. Chlorine and bleach accelerate tarnishing, and should be avoided. Apply perfume and lotion before putting on your jewelry.
STERLING SILVER
Sterling silver is composed of 925 parts of pure silver and 75 parts alloy, usually copper. Copper provides the silver with sufficient hardness which gives it strength and wearability. We use nickel free sterling silver that has been reclaimed and recycled.

STERLING SILVER VS PURE SILVER OR FINE SILVER
Pure or fine silver is 99.9% silver, is much softer than sterling silver, and is often considered not practical to wear as everyday jewelry. We do not use Precious Metal Clay (PMC), fine silver, or pure silver. We use sterling silver for it's strength.
ABOUT 14K GOLD
We use 14k gold, the most popular choice in the US. It is 58.3% gold and is ideal for fine jewelry. Alloys of copper and silver, mixed with pure gold gives 14k gold it's strength and warmth. We use 14k gold that has been reclaimed and recycled.

ABOUT BRONZE
Bronze has been used in jewelry making since antiquity. An alloy consisting of 92% copper and 8% tin, it is a beautiful, economic alternative to gold. Because its composition can vary, discrepancies in color can occur. We do not use bronze chain because we cannot guarantee a color match with the bronze we use for making our charms and pendants. Bronze charms and pendants are hung on solid sterling silver chain. We use bronze that has been reclaimed and recycled.
