Southwest Style Jasper and Lapis Earrings

Click on this link to learn More about this Product!

These long dangle earrings are handcrafted with natural stones, sterling silver wire, and lots of Southwestern flair. Like the red rock canyon country of Utah, these artisan earrings are full of earthy red, pink, sandy beige from red porcelain jasper and brilliant blues from sodalite and lapis lazuli stone beads. Rustic silver wire work evokes petroglyphs on rocky walls or the slender shadows cast deep into a canyon.

Earrings are 2.375 inches long and dangle freely.

Pebbles at my Feet

About the Author:

I am Pamela Hollis, from South Park in Colorado. I am a biologist by degree, an engineering business manager and technical writer by career, a ski instructor, creative cook, musician, and jewelry artisan. I love stones - picking them up and putting them in my pocket, polishing them, collecting them, displaying them on windowsills, and creating jewelry with them. I also love working with metal wire and sheet. Pebbles at my Feet designs are influenced by Nature, fueled by my childhood memories of my father's lapidary hobby, and colored by the places I've lived. Every piece has a stone it it somewhere! I am inspired by them: their color, polish, and light play. My work is also influenced by the earth, snow, rivers, and skies of South Park and the mountains of central Colorado. I strive for immediacy in my jewelry - as if I was making a daisy chain in the field, only using wire and stones. I want Pebbles at my Feet to evoke that childhood joy of found treasure. My simply designed jewelry lets the stone - from humble backyard pebble to luminous gemstone - speak to the wearer.
