Are you ready for spring?? I know I am and these earrings are great for St. Patrick’s Day (and spring days ahead)! The beautiful Green Onyx is from my wonderful mother-in-law who lives in Tucson, AZ. She has become my scout for beautiful stones in Tucson! When I last saw her in January, she brought me these and I fell in love with the color! They remind me of hard Christmas candy, shiny and bright green.
I formed the thick rings with sterling silver then hammered and silver soldered them. I made the connection piece to attach the onyx to the rings with and once that was done, I cleaned, polished and attached the earring hooks (which I also made with sterling silver). Voila… 100% hand-made and with a beautiful natural stone- they are ready for spring!
