I am a big fan of scam rocks and have a large collection of man made materials that have been produced and sent to market as “the real thing”. These earrings are cut from such material. I love the ingenuity of fake stones. People put so much work into creating look-alikes, and incidentally end up making a superior material! Fake turquoise is so easy to work with in the studio. Real turquoise is a crumbly, powdery mess. Chances are if you have real turquoise jewelry it has been hardened with resins or epoxies (stabilized) in order to be worked with anyways. Very rarely is it stable enough to be worked with raw.

The stones are 32mm wide and hang 58mm on hammered 14k gold fill wire. The earrings weigh 9 grams total.

All items are shipped USPS First Class Mail within the USA and USPS First Class International shipping for orders outside the USA.
