✩Sleeping Beauty Turquoise✩
Sleeping Beauty Turquoise is so called because it come from the "Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Mine" (Arizona USA, a highly revered location for Turquoise) it got its name because the shape of the the mountains looks like the reclined silhouette of character Sleeping Beauty. Turquoise forms with beautiful matrix veins whereby other minerals have become trapped in the gemstone as it forms such as Pyrite, which appear as patches or veins of grey or black.

*The ancient Egyptians, Native Americans and Tibetans have believed in the special powers of turquoise for centuries. Some believed that turquoise can protect its wearer from harm, whilst others thought that it brought good luck or longevity.
*Today turquoise is believed to offer protection and to be helpful for careers and travel. It is thought to facilitate leadership and clear communication.

✩Black Obsidian✩
Black Obsidian is a volcanic glass. On first glances it appears as a rich opaque black, but when held up to a light it has an occasional areas of translucency, showing rich browns or dark greens. Obsidian may also contain patterns of gas bubbles remaining from the lava flow. These bubbles can produce interesting effects such as a golden sheen.

✩Obsidian Mythology, Legends, Lore and History✩
*For fans of Games of Thrones this Obsidian is also know as "Dragon Glass", although I'm not sure how these earrings would help dealing with White Walkers!
*Since ancient times, obsidian has been used in making various tools such as arrowheads, knives, and saws. Today, some of the sharpest medical scalpels in the world or made from it, because of how thinly and smoothly the blade can be sharpened.
*Obsidian is a very strong gem stone of protection, worn by ancient warriors to ensure both protection in battle and also that they maintain their high standards of honour by being honest, sincere and truthful.
*Polished Obsidian was also used to make scrying mirrors for foretelling the future.

The hand forged Sterling Silver ear-wire/hoops are suitable for regular/normal pierced ears, they are made from 0.6mm wire. This will easily fit regular piercings but if you would prefer a slightly thicker 0.8mm ear-wire, please add a note when you buy, I will make and replace this for you at no extra charge.
*If you like this design I could make you something very similar with a non-pierced finding (the non-pierced/clip-on findings would be silver plated).
*These earring hoop finding can be worn through gauged tunnels, I have tried this style of ear-wire trough my own 8mm metal and silicone tunnels, they fit and hang wonderfully.
*I also offer the option of a "Fish Hook" style ear-wire.

Please choose the ear finding type from the drop down menu.
