Cream and Maroon Hand-cut Gemstone Silver Earrings
Sterling silver satin finish ovals form the background for these hand-cut matte cabochons. The creamy neutral beige colour is brought to life by streaks of maroon purple at one end. These earrings are striking in their interest, yet neutral enough in style and colour to match any outfit.
I couldn't resist using this stone to make these cabochons, even though it turned out to be quite difficult to work with and to polish. Consequently this stone is unusual even though it was found locally. I am not exactly sure what this stone is however when ground it appears similar to white clay.
