American Sleeping Beauty turquoise was combined with hand fabricated sterling silver shapes to create these unique dangle earrings. They have a modern - yet southwestern type of flair and will make a bold, striking statement!

I created the shapes out of solid sterling silver sheet; hand filed all of the edges until meticulously smooth; and then hammered and stamped the metal to create the rich, organic texture. The silver was given a charcoal patina and then buffed and polished to a beautiful sheen.

American turquoise stones were added to dangle above the shapes. This turquoise originates from the Sleeping Beauty mine located in Arizona. This mine is known for producing high quality turquoise that is a stunning sky blue color – reminiscent of the lovely blue skies here in the American Southwest. These particular stones have a lovely blue-green hue - along with a subtle matrix.

MEASUREMENTS: Total length: 3-3/4” from top of sterling silver ear wires and 7/8” at widest point.

NOTE: Please refer to measurements above. Photos are enlarged to show details.

All my jewelry is my own original design and handcrafted by me in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA.
