I call this technique of combining gemstone beads in an arc my 'gem weave'. The color possibilities are endless. Here is one of my most popular combination--Earth, Ocean and Sky.
Gemstone briolettes are woven with gold fill wire to form a vivid arc of color. Whiskey quartz, labradorite, swiss blue topaz, peridot, aquamarine and kyanite are secured to a silver frame that has been given a deep, oxidized finish. Earwires are 14/20 gold fill.
These earrings dangle 2 1/2 inches long and approximately 1 1/4 inches wide.
