I made these earrings using AAA quality rubellite tourmaline microfacted ovals and solid 14K gold wire and findings. I was totally thrilled with how they turned out!
The stones are marvelously rich and sparkly, and extremely clean for tourmaline. And the gold is...well...it's real gold! Yay! :D
At first I was very nervous about wrapping with high karat gold, but I jumped in and did it. I'm really quite pleased with my results.
The little open marquise link at the bottom is solid gold as well and adds just a nice little touch to make these more fun and flirty. They're about 3 inches long and quite elegant. I just love them!
I have quite a few pieces made and pictures taken, but I haven't gone through them all yet (what else is new?). That's the hardest part. They'll be in my shop soon though (I hope). I'll give a sneak peek here first though. My shop is running low and the holidays are upon us! I have to get stocked up as best I can and still have a life!
If you're interested in these rubellite earrings, feel free to pop on over to my shop. You can find them there!
I hope everyone had a great weekend. This week is Thanksgiving and we'll be going home to the mountains to eat turkey and see Granny and my family! (It's Thanksgiving already, do you believe it?!)
Have a good one! Until next time....
