The original hoops may have looked much like this, simple and easy to live in. Many museums have similar items. I handform these out of your choice of 18 gauge (1.024mm) sterling silver, niobium or gold fill wire and file the ends, then pick out gemstone chips to dangle from the hoop.
The pictures show a Small sterling hoop with turquoise and hematite and then a trio of hematite, tiger's eye and turquoise chips.
Shot 4 shows the gemstones: pink rhodenite, brown tigers eye, blue lapis, grey hematite, turquoise, yellow/orange amber, green malachite. All of the stones are genuine.
The final shot shows the 28g 14k white, 26g 14k yellow, 24g 14k pink, 22g niobium and 20g sterling silver so that you can compare metal colors.
This listing is for one (1) hoop and 3 chips, or two (2) 18g hoops and six (6) chips of your choice.
Select your size and materials from the drop down menus.
If you pick Custom Mix, PLEASE let me know in the message to seller which gemstones you prefer. If you do not pick, it will be a Random Mix-- aka, I'll pick for you. If you'd like the drops to be a different metal than the hoop, I can do that too, just let me know.
Please check my FAQs for sizing details and materials information.
Please expect slight variations due to the handmade nature of the earrings.
