Earrings for your Spring and Summer dresses. I have used natural Turquoise nuggets of beautiful blue, added some green patinated brass beads, also an orange dotted Czech glass bead to create this light-weight 'wear me all the time' earrings. From the earrings dangle a protective 'Hamsa' charm of patinated brass. Did I say light-weight? fun? Sure to become your favorite earrings.
The Hamsa charm (five-fingered right hand) is considered a sign of protection and blessings in many cultures of the Middle East, dating back to ancient Mesopotamia (now modern day Iraq). It is also believed to provide a defense against evil and bad luck.
Turquoise is associated with gods and goddesses of many ancient cultures from China, the Middle East, and the Americas. It was worn by Pharoahs and Aztec Kings. Native Americans used the stone symbolizing the sea and sky coming together, to bless warriors and hunters. Turquoise is thought to attract prosperity and success, enhance creativity and communication. Turquoise is the alternate birthstone for December. Almost all turquoise has been treated with a transparent resin in order to stabilize it, as it is a fragile stone in an untreated state.

Bead size: 4 mm faceted and 8 x 12 smooth Turquoise nuggets; 7 mm patinated brass melons; 12 mm long Hamsa charm.
