Turquoise Jasper Handmade Earrings Pewter Hogan Gemstone Dangles


Make a LASTING IMPRESSION whenever you wear these beautiful handmade earrings. Sweet and simple in design, the lovely gemstone dangles pack a huge amount of stylish punch. Created with African turquoise jasper discs, the LASTING IMPRESSION earrings also feature lead free, corrugated pewter hogan beads and sterling silver. The Southwest inspired earrings do triple duty: subtle enough to wear to the office, perfect for weekend wear with your favorite jeans, and pretty enough to wear for a night out on the town. You have to love multi purpose earrings like that! Sure to become a favorite, the LASTING IMPRESSION earrings were carefully designed and hand crafted by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs for the woman who adores wearing one of a kind jewelry.

+ African turquoise jasper discs: app. 7 mm x 3 mm
+ Lead free pewter hogan beads: app. 8 mm x 5 mm
+ Metal: pewter and sterling silver
+ Earwires: sterling silver French hook earwires
+ Length: app. 1.75" / 4.4 cm measure from the top curve of the earwires

The African turquoise jasper discs used in the LASTING IMPRESSIONS earrings are absolutely lovely. African turquoise jasper is a gemstone mined in Africa and, unfortunately, is sometimes passed off as real turquoise because of its great resemblance in color and matrix to the much rarer stone. It has a natural bluish-green color with dots and swirls of black and dark grey matrix. The turquoise jasper used in these earrings are a hand cut disc shape; being hand cut, the discs are not exactly the same size, giving a wonderful rustic appeal to the earrings. Three discs were stacked on on top of the other for each earring. An oxidized sterling silver daisy spacer and 2 mm was placed at the top and bottom of each stack.

To add a glowing silver color and great texture to the earrings, I chose lead free pewter hogan beads made right here in the United States. Hogan beads are traditionally a bicone shape with a corrugated surface pattern. As you can see in the photos, the corrugated design runs from top to bottom. The pewter beads hang at the bottom of the LASTING IMPRESSIONS earrings and glitter as the earrings move. A 2 mm sterling silver bead was placed at the bottom of each hogan bead.

All of the components that make up the gemstone and pewter earrings were strung on a handmade (by me) headpin with a hand hammered loop at the bottom. The top of the headpins were carefully wire wrapped into a loop and connected to sterling silver French hooks for a perfect finish.

For a better understanding of the relative size of the LASTING IMPRESSIONS earrings, please be sure to check out photo #7 for a size comparison with a dime.

African Turquoise Jasper is said to help one pursue one's goals with determination and honesty; it is also believed to be a protective stone. Pewter is believed to be very grounding, bringing the wearer back to reality. Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.

The LASTING IMPRESSIONS earrings will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!

***Please be aware that not all computer monitors show colors exactly the same. The colors of the stones are extremely close to the actual color on my monitor. They may appear lighter or darker on yours.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I love the subtle beauty of African turquoise jasper. I had actually created a necklace with the discs and had some left over. What to do? A pair of earrings! Living in the Southwest, I wanted earrings that had that appeal so paired traditional, corrugated hogan beads with the jasper. The addition of sterling silver gave a greater glow to the earrings. Simple and sweet, these are beautiful earrings!

Materials Used

hand cut African turquoise jasper discs; lead free pewter hogan beads; sterling silver daisy spacers, 2 mm beads, handmade headpins and French hook earwires
