When I first saw these lovely Sonora Dendritic Rhyolite cabochons, I thought of Japanese cherry blossoms. I've combined them with pearls in a pagoda-style setting to create a subtle Oriental feel. The stones are a wonderful slate grey with red splashes highlighted in white.
Totally hand-fabricated from Sterling silver sheet and wire. Earrings measure approximately 1-7/8 inches long from top to bottom and a tad over an inch wide. Friction-style posts with extra large 10mm Sterling silver wing-nuts hold them securely.
