Here are the earrings that I made yesterday.  Confetti stone  was discovered in Indonesia by Yianni Melas in 2022. ( I had  thought that it was in 2023)

 

He named it "Aquadite" . This stone contains chrysocolla, malachite, cuprite, and  copper. I got the stones from a vendor in Indonesia.

 

With the flecks of copper, I thought that rose gold would be a good choice of metal to use for wire wrapping. Then I attached the two pieces to rose gold French hooks.

 

To wear these, I use little rubber stoppers on the French hooks, to prevent losing an earring.

@Enufstuff.  Very nice.  I have a pack of copper leverbacks.  Too bad I can't send you a pair.

I have never seen or heard of that stone before, but I really like it.

 

Your earrings are beautiful.

@Kachina624     Thanks.  I prefer lever backs too. I have silver ones, but no rose gold. I have a few packages of the rose gold wires and just used those.

 

  When I have a creative spark, I need to act, before it goes away.

 

   I'll have to check Fire Mountain Gems to see if they have any rose gold lever backs.

@on the bay   Thank you very much. I make sea glass jewelry, with added crystals or pearls. Some colors call out for rose gold,

rather than silver or yellow gold.
