Sterling Silver Earrings with Carnelian Gemstone and Silver Heart

Sterling Silver Earrings with Carnelian Gemstone and Silver Heart

£35.00

I thought I would embrace Autumn and make a pair of earrings which make me feel warm, and think of the season of all things umber, sienna, orange and rich!

A stabilising stone, Carnelian restores vitality and motivation, and stimulates creativity. It gives courage, promotes positive life choices, dispels apathy and motivates for success. It overcomes negative conditioning and encourages steadfastness. It sharpens concentration and dispels mental lethargy. Protects against envy, rage and resentment. Calms anger, banishes emotional negativity and replaces it with a love of life. Carnelian boosts fertility and stimulates sexuality. All round good stuff!

Firstly I drew and cut the hearts from 0.8 mm sterling silver sheet by hand; they measure approximately 1.5cm across. Then I formed a small circle and hammered it so that as it moves in your ear, the many surfaces created by the hammering, catch the light and give a lovely shimmery effect.

I drilled the heart, attached one of my jump rings and joined everything together. The ear wires are 0.8mm which is considered to be the most comfortable to wear by the experts - I don't know who the experts are, but I'm going with them!
