Dragon Glass Quatrefoil and Bronze Spike Delicate Filigree Earrings.

✩Black Obsidian✩
Black Obsidian is a natural 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 earring 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.

✩Variations/findings✩
These earrings come with very secure lever back findings in Antiqued Bronze/Brass colour (as pictured) which are suitable for pierced ears. But can be replaced (free of charge) with:
*non-pierced/clip-on findings
*large kidney wires, suitable for wearing though gauged tunnels, or if you prefer a longer earring (this will add approximately 2cm to the overall length).

For a small extra charge, I can replace the current ear-wires with:
*ear-wire made from Niobium in a “fish/shepherds” hook style.
Niobium is physiologically inert and thus hypo-allergenic. For this reason, Niobium is found in many internal medical devices. Niobium’s natural colour is a silvery grey. It can can also be electrically heated and anodised, resulting in a wide array of colours using a process known as reactive metal anodising, which is useful in making jewellery. Niobium is strong and highly bio-compatible. Anodising creates a thin oxide layer which is just as bio-compatible as polished Niobium. There are no other materials added and there is no plating or painting. Niobium is an excellent choice for anyone with sensitive skin, especially for those allergic to nickel, or the metals added to 925 Silver or 9ct Gold.

Please choose the ear finding from the drop down menu.
