Bittersweet - Red Jasper and Sterling Silver Earrings

These lovely red orange beads remind me of the berries of the native bittersweet plants I often saw while growing up in southern Ontario. I understand that the native bittersweet is becoming more difficult to find, while the introduced oriental bittersweet species has become very invasive.

These earrings drop 1.25" (3cm)from hand formed sterling silver ear wires that have been tumble polished to add strength and shine.
The red jasper beads are 6mm in diameter.

Available to purchase in my Etsy shop.
Purchase before midnight tonight and take advantage of my "Spring Has Sprung" Weekend Sale!
