With these adorable lightweight earrings you get the look of a dangly tassel earring with the comfort of a stud earring. They feature two bezel set 6x4mm Sleeping Beauty Turquoise cabochons which are bordered with an intricate Southwestern stamping design. From the hand forged silver design hangs a tapered tassel with features and assortment of different styled sterling silver chains. Rest assured they come with a sterling silver friction fit post backing to ensure they stay snug in your ears. You can hardly even feel they are there! 100% handmade with love in my cozy home studio nestled away in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts.
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection, strong and opaque, yet soothing to the touch, healing to the eye, as if carved from an azure heaven and slipped to earth. Turquoise is a strengthening stone, good for exhaustion, depression, or panic attacks. It enhances physical and psychic immune systems, supporting the assimilation of nutrients, alleviating pollution and viral infections. It is anti-inflammatory and detoxifying, reducing excess acidity and benefiting gout, rheumatism, and the stomach.
