I was vacationing in Naples on the Gulf of Mexico and was so inspired when I saw these turquoise stones! They looked exactly like the sea and the sand and just give me an hora of calm when I look at them. I also loved that they didn't match and knew they would make stunning earrings.

I got gold hooks and post for this project.

The stone already had a hole for the post, so that I just pushed through.

Then I fed the excess through the hoop.

Using plyers, I bent the excess with about 2/3 of the wire remaining so I can do a wire wrap around the hook.

After folding it in half, I did my best to spiral the "tail" around the part of the post that was visible.

Since these earrings were already meant to be asymmetrical, I didn't worry to much about the wire wrap being perfect. Wire wraps are a more secure way to finish jewelry like this.

Do these stones not look like a perfect snapshot of the water crashing? I was shocked and thrilled to learn that they were real turquoise and a die heart turquoise lover.
