Sterling Hamsa w. blue lab opal earrings
These laboratory-grown opals are absolutely gorgeous! Created in a lab using the identical chemical formula as real (ground) opals, these are both affordable and less fragile. Plus, did I mention how beautiful they are? Iridescent flash adds a changing array of rainbow color. The entire lab opal line is one of my best sellers at craft fairs.
The opal is set in a tiny sterling silver Hamsa 5/8" (18mm) long. Hamsa (khamsa), also called both Hand of Fatima and the Hand of Miriam, is an amulet prevalent throughout the Middle East and Northern Africa to ward off the Evil Eye. It's worn in jewelry and used in the home as a wall hanging. Hamsa is considered a powerful protection amulet.
From the top of the sterling silver ear wires, these earrings are 1-5/16" (35mm) long. I've added a 4mm Austrian Swarovski crystal in light sapphire 2AB to the ear wires.
If you don't have pierced ears, I can change these to silver-tone clips at no extra charge. You'll still get the crystal bead on top.

The earrings are even prettier in person than on the web. I've gotten lots of compliments about them.
