A trinity of mysteriously dark gems make up each earring with top quality sterling silver earwires and headpins.
Three wonderful, black tourmalines are threaded onto sterling silver headpins. The black tourmalines are unusual. Most people are aware of other tourmaline colours and know nothing of this wonderful vaiation. Which is a pity. They have a deep black colour to them with a wonderful sheen. On the surface of some of them (in good light) can be seen a light whitish marbling. Black tourmalines are reputed to be good at repelling negative energy!
In between the tourmalines are dark green, fire polished, Czech glass seed beads. The fire polishing on the seed beads gives each bead a wonderful iridescence.
I decided to use sterling silver headpins to thread the beads onto, so that the earrings stay looking beautiful for much longer.
The drop length of these earrings is a little under 3.5cm.
Each pair of earrings takes about 45mins to complete.
