These teardrop-shaped earrings are crafted from sterling silver metal, a fine silver bezel and denim blue, lapis lazuli stones. They feature a dove that I sawed out of sterling silver sheet metal using my jeweler's saw. Hammered lines radiate around the doves.
The lapis lazuli stones are set in the fine silver bezels. The bezels are soldered above the doves. A small ring is soldered at the top and the handcrafted, sterling silver, earring hooks are wirewrapped directly to the ring.
The earrings measure 2 1/4 inches long and just over 1/2 an inch wide.
I gave the metal and wire a dark patina.
