Russian amazonite, a form of feldspar has the fantastic visual iridescence that many of the other feldspars (sunstone, moonstone, ladradorite…) possess. Russian amazonite is truly fantastic due to the intensity of color. I took these photos outside in the sun, and these earrings just wanted to dazzle. At the price, how could you loose! The ear wires are white finished brass the rest is base metal.*
I fully understand the frustration of dealing with metal allergies and will work with you to create something fun you can wear. If you have sensitive skin, and are interested in the design, the ear wires can be switched to something more appropriate for your sensitive skin: sterling silver, surgical steel, nickel-free, or even gold. Contact me to discuss options and pricing.
