The Dueling Scorpion Hoops
This listing is for a MADE TO ORDER set of Dueling Scorpion Hoops.
Made to honor the enchantment of the desert, a large hoop earring, in a crescent design, made out of 10g sterling silver, houses your choice of warm earth colored stone resting in serrated bezels, with a roped border, framed on either side by intricate, indiviually hand "cast" fine silver scorpions, from scorpions a friend found in nature and gifted me. ✨
They can be made in either "Weight" style for gauged ears, or, with 18g hook closures for standard ears (which can also be worn through tunnels).
The earrings are given a patina to give them an antiqued, high contrast look, and then brought to a nice shine.
>>> Scorpions are another powerful totem. They carry many of the same strengths and messages as a snake. They are patient, intutive, fierce when threatened with danger, as well as good with boundaries and controlling the energy they expel, they also have the ability to shed their skin and emerge new after much growth. Along with these qualities, I believe carrying a scorpion talisman is a good reminder of focusing on what you carry, and making sure to release old habits and behaviors that no longer deserve to come on your journey. <<<
* The hoops measure 2 1/2" in diameter, and are made of 10g round wire.
* If you choose the "hook closure" option, the wire used is 18g sterling silver.
* The Black Onyx, Goldstone, and Tiger's Eye stone cabs are 1/2"w x 3/4"t. The Pyrite is 3/8"w x 5/8"t. The Baby Blue Kingman Turquoise are 12mm rounds. The Dark Blue/Copper Inclusion Kingman Turquoise stones, as well as the Greren Kingman Turquoise stones are both 10 X 14mm oval stones.
** The "weights" weigh an average of about .82oz a piece, and the "hook closure" sets weigh an average of .74oz a piece. So please be aware, that even for standard ears, these are heavier earrings. **
Because this piece is made to order, please allow 6 - 8 weeks for delivery. I strive to get custom orders finished within a couple weeks, but if I need to order more metals, or there is a long queue ahead of your order, it may take as long as 8 weeks - if it is time sensitive feel free to ask ahead of time for a more accurate timeline!
