Ocean dreaming

About this design:

These are from the new gemstone slices I just got and wanted a different design for. I balled the ends of fine silver wire and tumbled for shine. I added faceted blue chalcedony rondelles and sterling silver rondelles. I love the clean minimal finish. I am a fan of less is more design to make the gemstones stand out.


Blue opal slices, faceted blue chalcedony, sterling silver rondelles and my handmade sterling silver earwires

    Love these earrings. Love freeform, and to me not only are these freeform, they are also elegant.
