Twizzle earring with smoky quartz- English Norman
Each pair of earrings in this collection is unique and different. The dangles drop about 1 3/4" from the ear. These earrings have a beautifully clear piece of smoky quartz stone suspended from the hand formed swirls. Because I’m a bit of a bead hoarder (#beadaddict 🙋♀️), I’ve had these gorgeous stones saved for something special for years. The “special” is these earrings! They have a unique barrel facet and are quite elegant. We try to put together the most similar stones and swirls to form a pair. Because each pair is handcrafted, there may be slight variation in the swirl, stone, and size. The gold wire is 14K gold-fill. (PS- the model is wearing different stones than the one offered here but the overall look is the same.)
Each piece in this collection is a delightful combination of semiprecious stones and “twizzles” of silver or gold. What’s a twizzle? It’s a fantastic, funky shape that is created when silver or gold is forged, formed, hammered, smithed, and soldered with great imagination to create a unique work of art.
