Refreshing as a summer sorbet, here are my bead earrings made with a 7mm rhodochrosite bead. These little earrings are easy to wear and make a great every day choice. Rhodochrosite is an upbeat pink color with striations of varying shades within the stone. They are suspended on hand forged sterling ear wires with a lovely curved shape. Each wire is hand shaped and hammered just enough to strengthen the wire form and enhance the curves. The entire length of the earring is approximately 1″. Because each pair is handmade, and there is variation in each stone bead, please allow for the slight differences that make each pair unique. Note that the last picture is of a sample pair – the pair for sale is brand new and never worn.
Rhodochrosite is said to be a healing stone and is a gemstone for the heart chakra.
