These long and lovely earrings were made to highlight the eye-catching hand faceted long oval-shaped Carnelian beads. I have paired the fiery Carnelian beads with hollow hammered Copper coin beads and a Copper spiral dangle. The long beads are capped on either side with orange Carnelian rondelles and small Copper bead caps. Hanging on hypoallergenic Niobium earwires these beauties are sure to brighten your day!
Carnelian is a translucent Chalcedony with color ranging from light orange to reddish brown. The red color is due to the presence of Iron Oxide. It is commonly found in Brazil, India, Siberia and Germany. Carnelian has been used in jewelry since the Neolithic times. It is associated with the heart and emotional warmth, considered by some to promote courage, confidence and self-motivation. It is the alternate birthstone for July. In Arabic and Oriental cultures, it was thought to protect the wearer from the 'evil eye' of envious persons.

Bead size: 11 mm Copper coin; 3x 6 mm Carnelian rondelles; 8 x 30 mm Carnelian oval bead and 12 mm spiral dangle.
