Lemon Quartz Earrings
Wire Basketweave
February 2011

These earrings are 1 and 5/8" long and 5/8" inches across.

These faceted briolette, Lemon Quartz gemstones, are capped with a 22 gauge framing sterling silver wire which has been woven with a finer 28 gauge fine silver wire. The woven silver peaks, cap these luminescent citrus gemstones beautifully. They are finished with elegant sterling silver, French ear wires.

Lemon quartz is created by heating amethyst, yellow quartz, and iron together at extremely high temperatures. This heating process is what gives lemon quartz its brilliant, yellow color. The radiant beauty of lemon quartz is truly dazzling, particularly when light catches the facets and it truly comes to life.
