Lanlea - Gemstone earrings. Citrine, Garnets, Keshi pearls, Pyrites and Smoky Quartz earrings wire wraped in 14K gold filled. Handmade gemstone jewellery by Arctida

A couple of years ago I've got an old pair of earrings from my grandmother with gorgeous faceted Smoky Quartz briolettes (aka Smokey Topaz). The earrings were made of dark pewter (sorry no picture it was a couple of years ago) and did not make any justice to the truly stunning gems they had *hidden* :) I decided to upcycle the gems by making cluster earrings with more golden yellow and burgundy red gemstones and Keishi pearls for extra sparkle and make the setting in gold. So here is the final result!

~Lanlea~ Gemstone earrings. Smoky Quartz, Garnet, Citrine, Pyrite and Keshi pearls earrings wire wrapped in 14k gold filled and 18K Vermeil ballpins.
