Sterling silver hoop earrings with turquoise stone detail. Approx 6 cms total drop.
Turquoise is a protective stone and has been used throughout the ages for protective amulets. It can assist creative problem solving and is believed to stabilise mood swings, dissolve self-sabotage and allow self-expression.
With earrings, I always endeavour to keep weight to a minimum to make them comfortable to wear. These earrings are not hallmarked as they are below the weight threshold which makes it a legal requirement.
All my jewellery is handmade with carefully sourced metal and stones in my home studio using traditional silversmithing techniques.

All sterling silver and copper will tarnish over time, but the process is sped up when they encounter agents such as perfume, salty air, sulphur, skin creams, hairspray, chlorine and acidic skin ph. The amount of tarnishing that occurs is dependent on the skin and care habits of the wearer.
A gentle polish with a special jewellery cleaning cloth will generally be enough to bring your pieces back to full beauty.
