Andrea always finds the most amazing stones - these Kyanite briolettes are very flashy and an A grade, they are surrounded by pearls and crystals, accented by Iolite gemstones. These earrings are a labor of love and will be a treasure! They are a nice scale for someone who is not very petite. Andrea, creates the frame out of Argentium wire, which resists tarnish and fills in each layer by wiring each bead on with a sterling silver wire. A pair of earrings like this takes roughly six hours to create. A true masterpiece!!
