Earlier, I wrote about my expanding complex, multi-stone cluster earrings. This weekend I decided to go in completely the other direction, and remember that many beautiful gems need almost no dressing up to make a statement by themselves.
Particularly with a nice larger stone (10mm or more), a little accent of silver is perfect. I'm not one to wear longer earrings to work either, but I only leave the house with naked ears if I'm going running, so I was inspired by some of my stones to create the following, which I'll add to the shop this week.
Nice big juicy deep red garnets:
Funky Rutilated Quartz:
Mystic Blue Quartz:
And beautiful Clear Crystal Quartz:
Yes, these were all pictured outside - I haven't abandoned by interior pictures but the smaller earrings just get dwarfed with too much of a setting I find - also the weather was soooo perfect this weekend I used it as an excuse to spend more time on the patio!
