Mishap Earrings with Black Spinel
Everyone makes mistakes but the beauty lies in making positive things from those mistakes. These earrings originally started as a completely different earring but after an accidental over heating while soldering their destiny was to become these beauties. The patina on each earring shows off the beautiful texture of reticulated sterling silver. A single faceted black spinel in one of the earrings is a reminder that light shines even in the darkest of places.
The earrings measure about 1/2 inch with a post and ear nut closure.
A black spinel stone is set in one earring.
