Moab Utah Delicate Arch Earrings

Regular price $185.00

Utah felt like another planet to me, the pinks, creams and red sandstone towering above you, and all around you. Witnessing these deep slotted canyons that seem to go on for eternity, carved out by rivers and streams. The history and millions of years that it took to create this masterpiece will literally blow your mind, and make you feel so small when basking in mother natures sculptures. Moab, Utah is home of the Arches, the sandstone windows of our dreams. The most iconic masterpiece is Delicate Arch which I've captured in sterling silver.

Have you ever heard of this brilliant red stone called Rosarita? In the 1940's the price of gold spiked, and miners began revisiting old sites. They would build kilns over pits and smelt the gold filled sand to get every last bit. Rosarita or gold slag, is a by-product from this process. The glass like material(silica+gold) would run off mountains and solidify into boulders at the bottom. This refining process was only used for 5 years, as it was not the most effective method. The deep red color comes from the gold infusing with the glass.I love this little history nugget and how it reminds me of the Red Rocks of Utah. 

 These earrings were handcrafted using sterling silver and Rosarita. The patina should be maintained with a regular, light polishing.

*The jewelry should be treated like a one of a kind, handcrafted piece of art. That means no water, no rough housing and no chemicals!
