Wire Wrapped Lepidolite Earrings Sparkly Iridescent Lilac Purple Handmade Sterling Silver

These handmade wire wrapped sterling silver drop earrings are made with genuine lepidolite gemstones. The accent bead is also lepidolite. These Lepidolite are light lilac colored with frosty, icy lighter lilac flash when moved in the light at the right angle. This phenomena is similar to what you would see in Labradorite. Lepidolite is a gem of the mica family and contains a lot of lithium. Fans of lepidolite jewelry report a calming effect from the lithium.

As I do with all of my sterling silver jewelry, I used heavy gauge, solid sterling silver (not coated, filled or plated) wire to make sturdy wire art settings for these small and delicate stones. These include sturdy, handmade, solid sterling silver earwires. These are thin stones and are very lightweight to wear, but care should be taken not to damage them. Aside from the 6.5mm lepidolite accent beads, there are two tiny, natural, faceted rock crystal beads on each earring, as well.

stones ---- 19 x 12mm
earrings with the earwires ---- 2.63" / 67mm long; .57" / 14mm wide
