sterling silver inlaid Zuni-style turquoise malachite gem earrings
The three different pictures represent three different pairs of similar earrings, so you can see them and compare. Choose your favorite! This listing is for the first pair.
The second picture has a larger charm and a bigger chunk of turquoise.
The third picture has the same charm as this listing, but without the center section.
Zuni-style sterling silver earrings are inlaid with both real and laboratory-created gemstones. 20x10mm teardrop cabochon has gemstones which may include turquoise, black onyx, red coral, malachite, charoite, and yellow jasper. The charm is not Zuni-made.
Above the charm is a 6mm round Chinese turquoise bead. Bali-style beaded daisy spacer and 4mm black Austrian Swarovski crystal bicone accent the turquoise. Construction is meticulously wire-wrapped for beauty and security.
I added a 4mm round malachite bead, a Bali-style spacer, and a tiny coil to the flattened sterling silver fish hook ear wires. From the top of the wires, these gorgeous Zuni-inspired earrings are 2-1/4" (59mm) long.
For non-pierced ears, I can switch the wires to plated clip or screw back findings. You would still get the little malachite bead on top.
Absorbs both physical and emotional illness, moving the energy from higher planes into the earth. Encourages plant growth. 4th chakra.
In Native American, Chinese and Tibetan cultures, turquoise is a sacred stone used for protection. It strengthens the thymus gland and the body's immunity. Turquoise increases the levels of life-energy available to our body, and gives its wearer emotional vibrancy. Combines the color or earth and sky to lead us on our life-path. 5th chakra. December birthstone.
