This is a pair of large deep red tulip shaped earrings.
These earrings are made of natural howlite which is a white gemstone. The howlite has been dyed to this lovely deep red colour. (Usually I don't use any stones which have been dyed or altered, but these were so gorgeous that I made an exception!). Howlite is very porous so it takes the colour very well, and it won't fade or bleed. The wire inside the stones, and the ear hooks are solid sterling silver.
The stone tulips are 4 cm long. The earrings are 5 cm long from the top of the hooks.
I am the designer of these earrings and I have put them together with my own hands. I have been making my living exclusively from designing and making jewellery for 9 years. I travel every year to seek out old and tribal silver from Asia and India along with semi-precious stones. Back at home in Brighton, England, I make these loose pieces up into beautiful and unusual jewellery.
Every item will be sent beautifully packaged in a cotton gift bag made especially for me by a women's self help group in India.
