Sword in the Stone Earrings
These awesome earrings depict a sword going through a stone. The blue stones on these are Kyanite.
The ear hooks are Niobium which is hypoallergenic and safe for most metal allergies. Comes with clear backings.
The earrings are about 2.5 inches long from the base of the hook to the bottom of the sword.
How Its Made: Each stone is handpicked to meet my standards of excellent quality. Ring bands and many other connective parts are hand formed and are then sculpted onto the stone with a permanent epoxy. In the areas where I would like metal to be, I paint each piece with an electrically conductive paint. The next step is to put a removable, protective covering on all stones. The necklace will then go through a process where it is submerged into an acid bath and the areas with the conductive paint will begin to grow a super strong layer of 100% pure copper. This growth process takes 12 - 36 hours for each piece and is monitored during the process. After this is done, each piece is one by one hand polished, cleaned, oxidized, polished again, and then given a clear protective coating.
