Woven Palette Earrings in Moonstone
Moonstones and gold-filled wire woven together to form sculptural statement earrings. The light sister of Labradorite, Moonstone is a Feldspar stone that at first appears white or grey and then flashes bright rainbow or blue. Moonstone is revered in many cultures for its lunar connection and according to Hindu mythology, it is made of solidified moonbeams. The most powerful time to wear Moonstone, also known as the "Psychic Stone," is during the full moon. Moonstone is mainly found in Sri Lanka, India, and Madagascar. Handmade in Germantown, New York & Block Island, Rhode Island without the use of heat or chemicals.
Please note that these are one-of-a-kind pieces, each varies slightly in construction and form.
