Imperial jasper! I absolutely adore this stone and it’s been a huge pleasure to design pieces around it. What could be better for spring than these soft colours and gently radiating orbicular patterns?!
In the pair of stones I used for these earrings, I see the concentric growth of trees as the wood cells radiate outwards from the pith, so I’ve named them the Heartwood dangles. The light + dark growth of trees that create the annual rings you see in cross-sections of logs are called early wood + late wood and reflect the changing growing conditions as the seasons progress.
Recycled and reclaimed sterling silver with hand-forged fringes that echo the shapes of the stones and give these dangles great movement. Oxidized satin finish. Handcrafted from scratch. Earrings come with sterling silver ear nuts.
All handcrafted using traditional silversmithing techniques, with my own two hands and a lot of heart and soul. Each North Star Silver order comes lovingly packaged and ready for gift-giving. I use GOTS-certified organic cotton jewelry bags and/or 100% post consumer recycled kraft jewelry boxes with natural cotton filling. All orders come with a complimentary polish pad.
