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 Amethyst 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.
Amethyst is a gemstone often worn by healers, as it has the power to focus energy. Amethyst is a stone of spiritual protection and purification, cleansing one's energy field of negative influences and attachments, and creating a resonant shield of spiritual Light around the body. It acts as a barrier against lower energies, psychic attack, geopathic stress and unhealthy environments.
