These intricate dangle earrings were inspired by the landscapes of a dear to my heart country in Eastern Europe, Belarus. It is often called blue-eyed Belarus. The symbolism of the name lies in the fact that there is a great number of lakes which look like blue eyes when they reflect the color of the sky. When you drive through the country, you would also notice a lot of coniferous woods with their striking emerald green color. The combination of malachite and amazonite represents just that. I have wire-wrapped a coiled frame around malachite coin and suspended an amazonite briolette right below it. There's lots of movement and the color contrast is really stunning, don't you think?
