My friend Christine noticed in yesterday's post that there is a bit of a theme running through these stone earrings. The style of the earring is the same, but the stones have been switched up.
Today I'm showing you my favorite one so far .... a green jasper called Sonora Sunrise, mined in Mexico. It is a relatively new-to-the-show stone (the Gem show in Tucson that is). It has deposits of Chrysocolla and red Cuprite with perhaps some Tenorite in it. I am in love with the deep green in this jasper, with the tiniest wisps of red. I used rough cut garnet rondelles in this pair to pull out that red, and switched up the wire to include copper instead of silver. There are still more to show you! So, stop back by to see me again this week.
