SIlver and Peridot Drop Earrings


In these earrings I have combined some wonderful organic peridot disc beads with handmade sterling discs and teardrop shaped domes impressed with a clematis pattern.
The silver discs are in fact remelted and recycled silver from my workshop - not perfectly round, but melted blobs that have been flattened and had a hole drilled in them. The petal shaped dangles are made from fine silver and have been patinated to show of the flower vine pattern they are textured with.

The peridot beads have got that lovely spring green colour, classic for this gemstone. Peridot is the birthstone of August. The Egyptians called it the gem of the sun and it is said to bring strength to the wearer and protect them from nightmares.

The earrings measure 45 mm from top to bottom and the petals are 12 mm at their widest.
* Sterling silver ear wires and discs
* Peridot disc beads - 5mm diameter
* Fine silver drop shapes 16 by 12 mm
