The stars of the handmade earrings are definitely the turquoise magnesite spikes. Long and lean, they add a swaying beauty to the overall designs of the TRIBAL SPIKES earrings. Turquoise magnesite is naturally a white stone, but since, it takes a permanent dye easily, you can find it in many different colors, including the turquoise and red in these earrings. Note - turquoise magnesite is NOT real turquoise despite magnesite being passed off as the much more expensive gemstone.
To add the tribal flair to the artisan earrings, hand carved bone beads from Africa and red magnesite rondelles were added. The African bone beads were dyed a darker color and then hand carved to bring out the natural whiteness of the bone. Since each were individually carved, the beads are similar but not exactly the same - something I love about handmade! The rich red red magnesite rondelles add just the right pop of color. As was mentioned above in the turquoise magnesite section, the red magnesite beads have been permanently dyed.
The turquoise magnesite spikes were carefully wire wrapped to the bottom of a length of copper. he carved bone and red magnesite beads were then strung on the wire. he copper wire was carefully wire wrapped into a loop and connected to sterling silver French hook earwires. A 3 mm copper bead was added to each sterling earwires for extra adornment.

Magnesite is said to help turn dreams into realities and instill peace during meditation. Bone is said to bring good fortune and strength. Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development. Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.
