With Linda Blackbourn Jewelry "Edge" posts, you will receive stud earrings created using age-old silversmithing techniques with .925 Sterling Silver and high-grade semi-precious stones. This post earring has a modern design using the oxidization of the .925 Sterling Silver to create a shadowbox effect. The 6mm bezel set stone is surrounded by a recess of black and then the high polish "edge" of sterling silver. Most people end up with more than one pair of these favs!!
These are fun red earrings!

Traditional silversmithing done in my studio in Kensington, MD.
Spiny Oyster was used by Native American artists to make inlays in fine jewelry. It comes from the shell of the bivalve mollusk, Spondylus varius. Like many other bivalve mollusks, the soft, meaty interior of Spondylus is edible, so the Spiny Oyster’s valued for its hard, outer shell as well as its interior meat. Despite its name, the Spiny Oyster’s much more closely related to the scallop than to the true oyster.
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.
