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 and rhodolite garnet. Rhodolite is the most prized grade of garnet, a deep wine shade with a touch of violet flash, which echoes the subtle violet tinge of the pink chalcedony. The earrings feature faceted 9mm. briolettes of pink chalcedony and a cluster of 4mm. faceted rhodolite garnet rondelles, a total of 24 in the pair. They are wired on sterling silver-filled pins and accented with tiny faceted silver-filled beads, to sterling silver scrolled heart-shaped connectors.
They hang from sterling silver leverback French wires. They measure 2 & 1/8" total and 1.5" without the wires.
All metals are sterling silver and sterling silver-filled, and all gems are genuine.
Note: the white filaments on the garnets in one of the photos are from the background material they were photographed on. Mea culpa!
