I am thrilled with this deign. The Sunrise Earrings shape is from a classic fan shape but I wanted to incorporate Gold and Silver with a pop of color in a semi-precious stone. It just came together!! 8mm Amazonite is highlighted beautifully by a 14ktgf (gold filled) bezel in a shadowbox ... with a 14ktgf ring to attach the 14ktgf earwires. A perfect balance of gold and silver ... the .925 sterling silver hammered finish is stunning -- oxidized to enhance texture. Handmade and silversmithed in my Kensington, MD studio.
Called the Stone of Courage and the Stone of Truth, Amazonite empowers one to search the self and discover one’s own truths and integrity, and to move beyond fear of judgment or confrontation with others to live in alignment with those beliefs and values.
All jewelry designs are created using natural gemstones. There will be some natural variation in the jewelry. Our best is done to represent colors and markings in our photos. At Linda Blackbourn Jewelry, I've tried my best to describe everything as accurately as possible -- in words and photos. Gemstones vary, of course, as do computer monitor screens, so there may be minor discrepancies.
