This version of my bestselling Peyton Earrings feature teal blue and black Sonoran Sunrise gemstone drops wrapped in my signature style.
I hand wrapped each drop of Sonoran Sunrise with a mix of fine silver wire, hand formed coils of sterling silver wire, and 14k gold fill rounds. The wire wrapped stone drops dangle from handmade sterling silver ear wires. To add to the rustic feel of the Sonoran Sunrise drops, I gave the silver an oxidized patina and then buffed it by hand to highlight the intricacy of the wire wrapping.
The Peyton Earrings are approximately 2 inches long.
Sonoran Sunrise (sometimes called Sonoran Sunset) is a naturally occurring mix of chrysocolla and cuprite. It is found in only one copper mine located in Northern Mexico
