Local Oakland, CA pick up available
A sparkling chunk of pyrite paired with hammered steel . Earrings range from 2.5"-3.5" in length from top of hook to bottom of stone. Excellent blend of tough and elegant perfect for day or evening wear.
This stone was used by indigenous people of Central America to produce magic mirrors. In its raw form pyrite is the disco ball of nature.

Findings are made by hand. Ear hooks are always 20 ga hardened argentium, a high silver alloy that is more hypoallergenic than sterling and certified recycled.
All of my work is hand fabricated from raw materials, by me in my tiny, Oakland studio so each piece is unique.
