Details

Earrings that are exquisite and one of a kind? You betcha! They are right here! These stunning PASSIONATELY PURPLE earrings are for the woman who truly wants jewelry that is cutting edge and that no one else has: purple druzy agate (look at those crystals!) with faceted sterling silver beads. Handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, these earrings can be worn with a wide range of clothes, from dressy to the office to dress down. I'd definitely wear them with blue jeans! These PASSIONATELY PURPLE earrings are a perfect complement to the druzy and quartz necklace of the same name.

What is druzy? Druzy is a sparkling layer of tiny quartz crystals that have formed over eons on agate, often in a geode, as these pieces have. Druzy crystals must be tiny and not at all coarse to be considered gem quality. The 13mm druzy agate rounds used in the earrings are definitely gem quality as you can see from the photographs. Such tiny, glittering crystals! The agate has been dyed a deep, luscious purple that serves to set off the sparkle of the crystals. I usually don't like to use stones that have obviously been dyed, but these stones caught my eye and just pulled me to them. What gorgeous beauties they are!

To add a bit more sparkle to the earrings, the druzy agate rounds have been framed on the top and the bottom by faceted sterling silver beads. Believe me when I say the faceted beads really catch the light but not in a way that distracts from the druzy agate. The faceted sterling beads are separated from the druzy agate by sterling silver daisy spacers.

To finish the earrings, I handmade sterling silver headpins, hand-hammering a loop at the end. The main body of the earrings were placed on the headpins and then carefully wire-wrapped to sterling silver earwires for a perfect look

Druzy agate is used to bring inner peace and to increase one's ability to give and receive love. Silver is the metal of love and healing.

Here is the important information for these PASSIONATELY PURPLE earrings:

Purple druzy agate: app. 13mm; dyed
Faceted sterling beads: app. 3mm
Metal: sterling silver
Earwires: French hooks; sterling silver
Length: app 1.75"/4.4 cm

If you are looking for a pair of truly dazzling earrings, these PASSIONATELY PURPLE earrings are them! Druzy agate stones like this is fairly rare, so this pair would be a perfect addition to a jewelry collection!

I LOVE those purple druzy beads. The only problem is I always try to wear my own jewelry but if somebody doesn't buy these soon I may have to break my rule! They are so cool. I'm off to look for the matching necklace.
