Handcrafted Silver,Heart Earrings, Aventurine
Green aventurine is believed to be a healing stone, one which helps to get rid of negative emotions and bring about well-being and emotional calm. Teamed with a sterling silver heart, these earrings make a powerful statement and would be a perfect gift for someone special.
As with all my handcrafted silver pieces, they began with a lump of silver clay. I cut, textured, dried, sanded, drilled and then they were fired. During the firing process the binder is burned away to reveal 925 silver which I then sent for hallmarking at Edinburgh Assay Office. To finish, I added a patina using liver of sulphur which brings out the textural qualities. Hanging from sterling silver ear wires.
They come to you gift boxed along with information about the creative process and the gemstone.
