These earrings feature American Sleeping Beauty turquoise accented with handcrafted sterling silver in these long, bold earrings. They have a modern - yet southwestern flair and will make a striking statement. I created the shapes out of solid sterling silver sheet; hand filed all edges until meticulously smooth; then hammered and stamped the metal to create the texture. The silver was oxidized, buffed and polished to a beautiful sheen. 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.
MEASUREMENTS: Total length: 3-3/4” from top of sterling silver ear wires and 7/8” at widest point.
