Russian Serpentine rosebud knot wire wrapped earrings


Product Code: 30626f

Stock Level: 1

Russian Serpentine and antiqued copper rosebud knot wire wrapped earrings.  The gorgeous mottled green beads have been wrapped with a fine gauge of copper wire which forms a delicate rosebud knot below the bead, then spirals twice around the bead to form a double wrapped neck atop the bead.

The beads are called Russian Serpentine as it is mined in the Ural mountains and is named after it's mottled snakeskin-like patterns - it is also reputed to protect the wearer from snake venom, but I wouldn't recommend it.  These stones have a nice fine patternation of greens with some black matrix.

Each earring is made from a single piece of wire which has been variously knotted, looped around the bead and wrapped above it in an alternative to a more straightforward headpin.

The earrings are entirely hand crafted and drop around 32mm (1¼") overall from the top of my straight drop earwires and the beads are 10mm (0.4") in diameter. They have been antiqued to bring out the textures of the wrapping and all cut ends have been filed smooth for your comfort. 

Please note that these will be the last pair of these earrings as I don't have any more of the beads that are suitable for this design.
