Take a walk on the wild side with these Wild Leopard Earrings! Also known as the Jaguar Stone, these have amazing colors and patterns. I shaped the backing copper circles by "dapping" them so they are concave, then added a rich brown patina that suits the stones perfectly.
Ear wire material: Copper
Length of earring from the ear wire: 3/4"
Stone: Leopardskin Jasper (aka Jaguar Stone), 8mm. The stones will NOT be the exact stones in the pictures of the earrings, see NOTE below.
NOTE: These stones have a lot of wonderfully unique natural patterns! Therefore, the stones you get will NOT be the exact stones shown in the pictures of the earrings. Instead, see the picture I included that shows the variety of Leopardskin Jasper stones I have. I will pick out a pair that has grey with patterns of rusty markings, similar to the earrings pictured. If you prefer one of the other color patterns (e.g., if you want stones with more rusty-reddish color), please let me know in a note with your order.
About Leopardskin Jasper
Although named a Jasper (aka the Jaguar Stone), this stone is actually a type of Rhyolite. It has a leopard like pattern of rusty-reds, earthy-yellows, browns, blue-greys and pinks.
It is said to light the fire of creativity within the soul.
