Lapis Oxidized Earrings

These earrings are oxidized to show a dark gray finish. There are teardrop shaped lapis lazuli beads faceted to the bottom. �I am a professional jeweler and metal-smith. I grew up in the Finger Lakes area and returned to live in Ithaca after graduating with a BFA in Fine Art from SUNY New Paltz. Drawing, sculpture and other art mediums have always interested me and I like to incorporate these in jewelry when I can. You can see this in my hand drawn and sawn out designs. I also use surface textures and hand forming to create sculptural elements in many pieces.� Measurments: 1.75" long including hooks
