One of my favorite authors is the talented Louise Erdrich, whose novels of Native American life in the modern world have all been highly acclaimed. My favorite of her novels is "Love Medicine," for whom this series of jewelry is named. All the pieces in this series, which I have been offering since 2000, are crafted with pink/rose/berry gemstones that are associated in folklore with love, soothing comfort and renewal.
These are simple and very feminine, in soft pink chalcedony, burgundy garnet, and powder-rose Austrian Swarovski crystal pearls (these are Swarovski crystals with a coating of pearl nacre). The burgundy garnets work perfectly with this shade of pink chalcedony. The earrings feature large faceted 10mm. briolettes of pink chalcedony and a cluster of 5,6, and 7mm. faceted garnet teardrop briolettes, a total of 12 in the pair. Atop the garnet briolettes are 4mm. Swarovski powder rose pearls. All are worked on 14kt. gold-filled wire and pins to a vermeil closed ring.
The vermeil French hooks are the star of the show, with swirled openwork hearts on the front. They include rubber stoppers for security. They measure a bit over 1.75".
Work a bit of Love Medicine of your own in these very feminine earrings, my Lady!
All metals are 24kt. sterling vermeil and 14kt. gold-filled, and all gems are genuine.
