Lapis lazuli & sliced geode one-of-a-kind earrings - peace
One of a kind earrings made from geode slices with an accent of faceted lapis lazuli and finished in white rhodium plated sterling. In ancient Egypt lapis lazuli was associated with the heavens and the supernatural because it resembled the starry night sky. In Ancient Rome, lapis lazuli was believed to be a powerful aphrodisiac, representing love, peace, and joy. These are two of my favorite stories surrounding this beautiful blue stone.
The raw minerals and stones are meticulously hand selected and ethically sourced. Each step along the way I am mindful of all the hands involved in the creation of my jewelry. For my design process, the real excitement begins when I enter in to the "creative cave". In some cases it starts with the raw mineral or stone, to the birth of a design that will come through the stone. Then to the cutting, polishing and setting resulting in a functional piece of art, co-created by mother nature and my-self.
