Clear quartz crystal teardrop bead earrings, suspended from anodized niobium earwires. They display a gradient color change from purple to teal green. The clear crystal quartz beads are teardrop in shape, faceted to catch the light. The Marquis shaped earwires add a graceful curve, and accentuate the shape of the teardrop beads. The beads alone are 12 x 8 mm in size. The length of these completed earrings is 1.5 inch (3.8 cm).
The colors in anodizing niobium are achieved by running an electric current through the metal at specific levels. Using this method, I can change the color of the outer layer of the metal - there are no dyes or other metals used in this process - it is still pure niobium all the way through. Click here

You will receive the same pair of earrings that is in these photos. If your purchase is a gift, I would be happy to wrap it and include a gift tag for you. Soft plastic earring stoppers are included.
I make each item by hand, with care, using entirely nickel-free materials. Your jewelry should never cause you pain, or irritate your skin. If you continue to irritate your nickel allergy, your allergic reactions will become more severe over time. Nickel allergies can appear at any age and last a lifetime, so everyone can benefit from choosing nickel-free jewelry. If you have additional questions for me, please do not hesitate to ask.
