These sweet earrings are part of my Asmi collection. Asmi is Sanskrit for "Be", which is the inspiration for this collection. A little bit boho with ancient vibes. These are hand stamped bronze with a border of rich blue/green chrysocolla stones. Measure 1 3/8". Handmade shepherd hook earwires. Sterling silver, which has been oxidized and hand polished for an antique finish.
About Chrysocolla: The name comes from the Greek chrysos, "gold", and kolla, "glue", in allusion to the name of the material used to solder gold, and was first used by Theophrastus in 315 BCE. It's unique blue green color is unique in the mineral world, and sometimes gets confused for turquoise. Chrysocolla is the gentlest of stones. Its main role is to soothe, calm and inspire. Its color alone is soothing with a deep blue-green which might remind you of a distant mountaintop or the stillness at the bottom of the sea.
