Copper, Sleeping Beauty Turquoise and Coral dangle earrings
I created these with the Southwest desert in mind. Copper, turquoise and the soft pink of coral made the perfect combination.
The copper squares are embossed and antiqued to bring out the pattern and texture. Sterling silver wires show off the dangling Sleeping Beauty turquoise and little pink coral beads. The wires holding the turquoise and coral are sterling silver, as are the ear wires.
MATERIALS: Sleeping Beauty Turquoise, coral (dyed bamboo coral), copper, sterling silver
PROPERTIES OF STONES: Turquoise is sacred to both Native American and oriental traditions. It is said to help promote honest and clear communication. In traditional thought, Turquoise unites the earth and the sky, bringing together male and female energies. This stone is empathetic and balancing. A promoter of self-realization, it assists creative problem-solving and calms the nerves when speaking in public. Coral is said to quiet the emotions and to bring peace to within the self. It facilitates intuition, imagination and visualization.
