The blue Stella drop earrings feature a vivid mix of bright, colorful gemstones including Sleeping Beauty turquoise, cobalt blue kyanite, purple amethyst, navy blue iolite, royal blue freshwater pearl, and teal quartz.
The gemstones dangle from ear posts that I made from a mix of eco-friendly recycled sterling silver and copper. The back of the post earrings is solid sterling silver as are the ear nuts.
The earrings were given an oxidized patina to give the earrings an aged appearance and to contrast with the brightly hued gemstones. I also kept the work on the ear posts a little rougher to add to the aged feel.
