Natural and raw, the intricately veined turquoise is carved in a modern design. The Austin drop is assembled to move freely, or "flutter", suspended on the chain finish of your choice. Offering 14K Gold filled or Sterling Silver with matching ear wires. The ear wires are a subtly, shaped arrow-head design and a premium, tension-back, closure to secure them in place. Austin is defined in name as "great, magnificent".
The stones make a singular partnership, chosen for their shape and balance. Each gem is raw, natural, hand-cut and polished minimally to keep the integrity of the minerals. The merging of these fine details produce a distinctive set.
Measurements (approximately from hook):
2.5" or 60 mm long dangle 0.5"w - 1"w ave. range across the thickest part of the drops
1"h - 1.5"h ave. range of height of stones from center bottom to top
Every Turquoise set varies greatly in size and color. Please choose from above for your "Flutter Drop" earring set and convo me (set # 1, #3 and #9 are sold-no longer available).
Every design is accompanied by a list. The list encompasses history, as well as scientific details, and the meta-physical healing qualities inherent to the metals, gems & beads on your piece. All accessory and jewelry items are shipped securely inside BINC bodyBAUBLES signature, keepsake storage satchel. The petite bag is made of inimitable, repurposed materials. The packaging doubles as thoughtful and unique gift-wrapping!
Inspiration for this and much of my work is generated from a respectful, ethnological appreciation of different cultures. Primitive jewelry and tribes also influence my designs. I'm encouraged by music, architecture, nature and the ecosystems within. Enjoy studying artists, tiles, pottery, textiles, garments, artifacts, and colors. I love noticing the ornate details within ancient weaponry and armor. I am fortified by history of all genres. Always stimulated by foods and herbs from different lifestyles throughout the world.
One of my favorite things to do is to go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in the NYC with my amazing seven-year-old son. He now has a love and fondness for the museum experience that is growing close to his mommy's.
