These handmade, sterling silver wire wrapped earrings are made with natural stone cabochons. The stones are rare ocean jaspers from Madagascar. The predominant color is yellow with some yellow green.

I made these wire wrapped earrings with heavy sterling silver wire- not plated, filled or coated wire. I used a diamond cut and faceted wire on the outside edge to give these some sparkle. I made the sterling French ear wires, hammering them for hardness and durability.

More about Ocean Jasper:

Ocean jasper is a rare, collectable and popular stone from the north-east coast of Madagascar near the village of Morovato. Before the supply was depleted, it was found off the coast at low tide. It was always in limited supply due to the difficulty in collecting it. Ocean jasper is a type of jasper called orbicular jasper because of the orb patterns found in it. It is alternatively called an agate, as well. It has remained so popular because of the incredible colors and sometimes surreal picture scapes created by the orbs. No stone is quite like it. Ocean jasper is one of my personal favorite stones. I am constantly on the lookout to bring you the quickly disappearing higher qualities of this unique stone.

Ocean jasper is said to:
increase expressions of love
focus the positive aspects of life
stimulate the solar plexus, heart and throat chakras
bring relaxation and cooperation
