The earring wires are surgical steel, recommended for those allergic to other metals.
The paintbrush jasper gemstones are melon shaped and measure 4 mm x 6 mm. The earrings total length is 2-1/2 inches long. (see photo with ruler) Earring wires are surgical steel, a good choice for those allergic to nickel.

SHIPPING OUTSIDE OF USA AND CANADA:

AUSTRALIA (added to my policies 7/10/2015):
Quote from USPS website: "Jewelry is permitted only when sent as an insured parcel using Priority Mail International service".
Please be aware that your own country's customs service may impose a range of import fees, taxes, tariffs, duties at the time of delivery. These fees must be paid by you. Falsifying customs declarations or having an item marked as "gift" in order to avoid customs fees is classified as Mail Fraud and is a felony. For more information, contact your local customs agency. Please keep in mind that international shipping can take up to three weeks for delivery.
If the (insured) item arrives damaged due to poor handling by USPS, you will be required to take a photo of the item (crushed package, item, etc.) Once this photo is e-mailed or mailed to me, it will be used to file a claim with USPS. After I receive the photos you may return the item to me with USPS tracking. Insurance coverage is recommended for the return.
PURCHASING ITEMS AS GIFTS FOR OTHERS:
If you are buying a gift for someone else and would like the receipt sent to you instead of the recipient, please let me know at "notes to seller" when ordering. I will contact you for your home or business address to send you the receipt. Otherwise, the receipt will be enclosed with your gift.
CHOICE OF COLOR, SIZE, LENGTH:
If you are to make a choice of color, size or length as indicated in the description, please indicate your choice at "notes to seller" at checkout. If I cannot reach you by email after 24 hours for this information, you will receive my choice.
Items are packaged and well protected in either a cardboard jewelry box and bubble envelope or a plastic jewelry bag wrapped in cushioning in a bubble envelope. All delicate pieces, for example, crystals and glass, will be packed with extra cushioning.
The beading wire I use in most of my beaded gemstone necklaces and bracelets is 49 strands. This grade of wire is the top quality because it is the strongest, the most durable, and provides the best drape. I will indicate in my descriptions when I have used 49 strands wire. Some lighter designs only require 7 strands. It is the most common strands used by jewelry artisans. For a professional finish, and durability, I use wire guardian protectors and crimp covers in most necklaces and bracelets.
My gemstones are purchased from either gem shows or jewelry supply dealers. I do not purchase gemstones at local craft stores, because most are rated lower quality.
I often use earring wires that are either non-nickel (nickel-free), sterling silver or surgical steel. This enables you to enjoy your earrings without allergic, itchy ears. Any earring wire can be exchanged to the metal of your choice. Metal clip-on are also available, including copper clip-on.
Chain and cord are purchased in bulk, measured and cut to length with findings and clasps added. All chain with charm jewelry is constructed by hand. I can shorten the length of chain and cord at your request.
Many items in sets (necklace with bracelet, for example) can be purchased separately. If not indicated in the description, please inquire. I would be happy to arrange a separate listing for you.
Do you have an older piece of jewelry that needs repair? Contact me with a detailed explanation and I will send you a quote.
