Excellent craftsmanship is shown throughout this amazing pair of earrings! This piece of Southwestern jewelry was hand strung bead by bead by American artist Caitlin Cooper out of genuine sterling silver, along with real Turquoise, Coral, and Black Mother of Pearl beads. The earrings consist of: 2-mm silver round beads, 3-mm Coral round beads, 4-mm Turquoise round beads, along with 12-mm fabulous Thunderbird beads dangling at the end for an incredible look.
Corals are known to be very soothing and very protective. Coral is of an organic origin; it is the skeletal remains of marine animals called Coral Polyps. Colonies of these tiny creatures build branching structures as they grow, gradually forming reefs and atolls.
Turquoise is the birthstone of December. It is believed that turquoise tends to bring good fortune, strength and helps overcome illness. Turquoise got its name from the Levantine traders called Turks who brought the stone to Europe from Persia via Turkey centuries ago. Native Americans have prized turquoise since the time of the Aztecs, who mined it in New Mexico. The natural variations that occur in turquoise are part of its appeal and beauty.
