This listing is for one pair of chakra ear climber earrings. 7 beautiful 4mm cabochon gemstones have been set on a sterling silver ear wire and comes in your choice of three metals: copper, rhodium-plate, or gold-plate.
The following chakras and their corresponding gemstones are as follows:
Root - Garnet Sacral - Carnelian Solar Plexus - Golden Quartz Heart - Green Aventurine Throat - Turquoise Third Eye - Lapis Lazuli Crown - Amethyst
Electroforming is the process of building up copper deposits on any object. The process can be very slow and it almost has a mind of its own. Sometimes there are striations in the copper, sometimes pits, sometimes there are little copper spheres. The results are always beautiful and unexpected making each piece entirely unique. Each piece had been cleaned up by hand and finished in the tumbler. The copper is absolutely raw... no added chemicals or sealants.
To maintain the finish as long as possible, avoid prolonged exposure to water as well as harsh chemicals. The copper will oxidize and darken over time giving it a warm deep finish. This is natural and every oxidation is unique to the person who wears it and the environment in which they live. The copper grows with you. You can bring back the original sheen by gently rubbing it with a soft polish cloth. Greening may happen. It doesn't happen to everyone. I leave the metals raw to avoid causing any reactions to additional chemicals. Rhodium-plate and gold-plate will not tarnish.
