Spotted Earrings



Sometimes there is nothing more inspiring than a Semi-Precious gemstone! Just look at these spotted Jasper beads!The deep browns and grey/purple tones had me at Hello!

When working with a gorgeous stone such as this, crafting earrings that showcases the stone is easy. I just wire wrapped these tear drop shaped beads on silver headpins and and added them to nice curvy silver earwires.

I can see someone donning these earrings with a gorgeous chocolate brown pant suit, and a nice up- do to show them off.

Check out my daily blog and shop my etsy store for more great earring designs.

  4. yes, love the mauve/winter white/brown! they make me think of rhyolite (another favorite stone-they always make me think of the sulfur pools at yellowstone) but in a different palette. perfect with the silver. definitely want a simpler design with such a dramatic looking stone.
