Wild + Free Hoops - Royston Turquoise
Wild + Free Hoops. A little ode to the mountains and trees we belong to. My heart will always long for the awe inspiring mountains of the west coast, but in the meantime, the subtler peaks of the north shore are definitely working their magic on me.
I got the idea for these earrings during our recent 4000km road trip, which took us all along the length of Kitchigami aka Lake Superior. The north shore has some pretty spectacular topography - and fun fact - the smaller, more rounded peaks of the mountains found here on the Canadian Shield are the remnants of earth’s most ancient mountains, worn away by time + the elements; giving us a glimpse at what the Rockies might someday look like, in geological time.
Geology is so cool, right???
Alchemized from scratch using forge, flame, and saw, these are made with recycled sterling silver + brass, and feature all natural Royston turquoise stones, mined in Nevada. Oxidized satin finish for an old world feel. Sterling silver ear nuts included.
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.
