Perseid

Perseid

The 'fire' in these labradorites appears as streaks of light, like the shooting stars in the Perseid meteor shower, which was happening the day I finished these earrings. Each smooth labradorite briolette is encircled with silver and a 'halo' of grossular garnets, shaded from pale green to deeper olive, wire-wrapped with fine silver. The earrings hang from hand-shaped sterling silver earwires. I have oxidised the silver to a dark patina, and polished it up to emphasise the wire-wrapping details. The dangles are 1 1/8" (37mm) long and 1" (25mm) wide; from the top of the earwires to the bottom of the dangles these earrings measure approx. 1 3/4" (43mm) in total.
