A pale yellow pair of handstitched beaded earrings, more loop than fringe, with a beautiful faceted piece of butter jade in the center. (for notes on “jade” see below)
The micro-faceting of the gemstones is difficult to see in the pictures, but it is very pretty how they catch the light. Seed beads used are the gorgeous picasso tinted Japanese seed beads; the color is a soft yellow to warm mustard. These are lightweight and comfortable to wear.
Other materials: quality thread is used for stitching; the ear wires are antique bronze, and hypo-allergenic. (note: you can always request a different ear wire; I used bronze because there is a bronze undertone to the beads)
Length: a little over two inches drop from ear lobe.
Shipping: Shipping is free to domestic U.S. address; additional features will be extra, such as expedited shipping, or insurance. International buyers please be aware that shipping charges will apply. See here for more information regarding shipping.
Note: Butter jade is not jade at all, but has been given that name because it is extremely useful for carving intricate designs as is the true form of jade. Butter jade goes by (or has been confused with) the names of African jade, Butterstone, Yellow Serpentine, and even Stromatolite. The only thing that is uniform about the identity of this lovely stone is that it is not jade!
