London Blue Topaz Bezel Earrings, Wheat Drop Earrings
I handmade these sterling wheat bezels and had them cast into recycled sterling silver, then I oxidized it to bring out the texture and give it a high polish for extra sparkle and shine. These are open-back bezels and the 6mm gems dangle from sterling silver earwires. These are gorgeous and will be your everyday go-to earrings.
London Blue topaz is the December birthstone, it is also given for the 4th, 19th or 23rd year of marriage. Blue topaz is said to increase strength and improve eyesight and it is worn to protect it's wearer from injury.
The wheat twist is my favorite texture for it's simplicity and special meaning. It reminds me of wheat and the story of The Little Prince, by Antoine de Saint Exupery. Specifically the part about taming the fox. When the fox meets the Prince they are strangers, and the fox asks the Little Prince to tame him. He says, "The wheat fields have nothing to say to me. And that is sad. But you have hair that is the color of gold. Think how wonderful that will be when you have tamed me! The grain, which is also golden, will bring me back to the thought of you. And I shall love to listen to the wheat in the wind.” "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye." -Antoine de Saint Exupery
