I’m so pleased with my series of Gemstone Blossom Earrings. They feature beautiful sculptural bead caps in sterling silver. They are lightly oxidized to show detail and resemble calla lilies. I use different sterling and Thai fine silver components to construct “stems” and other flower parts. The stones I’ve used so far for this series include rhodolite garnet, Rose de France amethyst, Swiss blue topaz and exquisite indigo kyanite. The kyanite is is spectacular – gem quality, rich and vibrant. Unfortunately I could only find a very limited quantity in the size and finish (smooth polished) I require. I am down to my last few beads and I wish I could find more.
