This is a pair of long drop earrings with lapis lazuli.
The very long tube beads are extremely pure solid fine silver (98%). They are tribal silver and have been handmade by the hilltribe people who live between Burma and Thailand.They are embossed with a pretty flower design on the front. The stone below bead below is natural lapis lazuli. It is in a rough multi cut shape and is unpolished. It is from Afghanistan (where the best lapis comes from) and has a very clear blue colour. The wire in the middle of the beads, and the ear hooks are all solid sterling silver.
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.
I understand that it is important to see, handle and try on jewellery. For that reason you are welcome to return any item for a full refund. It must be returned within 2 weeks, and be unworn condition.
