I revisited the "Peacock Strut" design but wanted these to take on a darker mood than the earlier earrings. I tried them on and upon looking in the mirror, became transfixed by the obsidians. It's like they were staring back at me and made me think of the protective, almost magical stare of an owl.

Winged Jasper Earrings, 2013
Mookaite Jasper, Topaz pears, sterling. 

This Mookaite Jasper is pretty spectacular in its color and form & deserved to be the center of the design. No need to add a lot of metalwork around the setting. Its simplicity works well. The topaz adds a bit of glitter & pulls those lovely rust colored streaks out of the jasper.

Mickey's Earrings, 2012
Broom cast sterling, amethyst briolettes. 

Broom casting is pretty fun: pour molten metal into a bundle of brooms bristles and you get these random stalactite shapes as well as a whole lot of smoke & fire. Keep a bucket of water close by.
