Minty Hearts

Minty Hearts

Wire-wrapped minty green pan-cut chrysoprase pear briolettes provide the colour for the 'Minty Heart' earrings; the gemstones are suspended from a pair of sterling silver hearts which I have created by curling, hammering and soldering wire. I have suspended the dangles from sterling silver hook earwires. These earrings measure about 2" (51mm) in total from the top of the earwires to the bottom of the briolette and the dangles themselve are about 1.5" (38mm). The design for these earrings started out as a doodle in a meeting at work, which just shows inspiration can strike at any time. Chrysoprase is an alternative birthstone for May (and not quite so pricy as Emerald!)
