Fine and sterling silver amethyst earrings are textured with sprigs of Sampson's snakeroot.  Two 8mm rose-cut African amethyst stones are set with gallery wire bezel settings and hang from hinged hoops that securely fasten.  The botanical portion is oxidized and highlights are polished for dramatic contrast.  

See details below.



Sampson's Snakeroot portions are made from fine silver (99.9% pure silver). All other parts are sterling silver (92.5% silver). Gemstones are African amethyst.


Hoops are 1/2" in diameter. Total length from the top of the hoop to the bottom of the earrings is about 2". Amethysts are 8mm in diameter.

Care information

Your order will come with a polishing cloth to touch up your jewelry pieces. I oxidize (tarnish) and polish the highlights of most of my jewelry pieces to bring out the texture of the prairie grasses and wildflowers. This oxidation will come off if polished with the cloth. When polishing pieces, polish only the raised surfaces to keep the dark oxidation.

Don't wear jewelry while swimming in a chlorinated pool or hot tub. Be aware that your piece can be damaged by some physical activities.
