Chinese cloisonne turtle glass briolette earrings
Turtles are known for longevity and are associated with wisdom and patience. In the creation stories of many cultures, turtles carry the world on their back.
Chinese cloisonne enamel turtles 15x18mm combine rich jewel tones with gold-color wire. 11x15mm wire-wrapped glass briolette dangles below. On top is a 7x11mm faceted glass rondelle.
I offer two color combinations:
1. black background turtle with Prussian blue and yellow-tone avocado green
Cerulean / Capri / turquoise-tone blue briolette
Rondelle is clear with dark teal core and royal blue outer stripes.
2. emerald green background turtle with Prussian blue and amethyst purple
Dark bronze / metallic navy blue briolette
Rondelle is clear with emerald green core and deep turquoise and royal blue outer stripes.
Please select which color you prefer. If you don't choose, I'll send whichever is currently in stock. I have three of each color combination available.
3-1/8" (78mm) long from the top of the gold-tone fishhook ear wires. I can switch to surgical steel (hypo-allergenic) earwires, but please bear in mind that surgical steel is silver-colored and the cloisonne is gold. However, I would be able to change the rest of the wire work to match. These can also be changed to clip or screw findings for non-pierced ears.

The earrings are even prettier in person than on the web. I've gotten lots of compliments about them.
