While doing the Paradise City show in Massachusetts, a geology professor wanders into my booth, drawn by these earrings. He asked if I knew what I had there! I told him all about them, and amazed, he said he'd wear them if he could get away with it! He thought they were a gorgeous pair. Find them on my website, www.patgullettdesigns.com.

Fusing pieces of sterling to a curved sterling base with just the right about of torch flame can be tricky. Too much and you melt the silver, too little and it falls off. These are just right, with two deep denim lapis stones to highlight the sterling. Patina creates deep contrast between the pieces, and all is bezel set, with sterling French ear wires. They are mysterious and remind me of Dragons. 3/4"w x 1"l, on www.etsy.com/shop/patgullett
I've just opened an Etsy Shop, www.etsy.com/shop/patgullett. In my new spirit of "Do the best you can with what you've got!!" for 2012, here are a pair of Mayan Portal Earrings of fine silver, sterling, and red glass beads.
