Turquoise Birthstone Cluster Earrings / December Birthstone

Birthstone Cluster Collection

Just in time to accompany the lush colors of autumn and the sentimental giving season, Bang-Up Betty’s newest collection of jewelry features gemstones in all their natural, glowing beauty, set in resin and displayed uniquely, a beautiful contrast to the polished and perfect way gemstones are traditionally set and sold for top dollar.

My brand new Birthstone Cluster Collection was inspired by nature and the gorgeously imperfect way the world’s gemstones come to us before they’re cut, set and made to look like something completely otherworldly.

I cast these stones in clear resin, letting them fall from my fingertips into the liquid wherever they land. Over several days, it hardens into a little cluster of gemstones that look like they’re bursting forth. Glowing peridots, moody sapphires, rich rubies, warm citrine crystals… all the colors of the birthstone rainbow.

Turquoise Birthstone Cluster Earrings / December Birthstone

46.00

It’s typically a face-off between blue topaz and turquoise for December’s birthstone, and we’ve chosen turquoise for the win. Turquoise, with its blue, greenish blue and sometimes robin-egg blue hues, is a variegated surprise, kind of like azure confetti that comes out of the earth. Turquoise is one of the oldest stones used by humans, found in artifacts as old as 5,000 B.C. Turquoise is associated with protection.

Each turquoise cluster strand earring is made by hand and is as different as each turquoise chip included. Turquoise chips are strung on wire, making about a 1/2-inch length of stones.

Chains are gold-filled or sterling silver. Hooks are gold-plated or sterling silver. The length of the earring is approximately 1 inch to 1 1/4 inch from the top of the arch of the hook to the stones.

Birthstone cluster earrings are made by hand at Bang-Up Betty’s North Little Rock, Arkansas, studio.
