Cornflower Blue Lava Stone and Pearl Earrings, Aromatherapy Earrings, Essential Oil Lava Stone Earrings





Entirely matte, not a sparkle in sight with 10mm Blue Lava stones, Swarovski pearls, an antiqued silver daisy spacer, and antiqued silver bead caps.

This Lava is an ideal carrier for your Essential Oils! The Lava stone acts as a porous agent where you may apply 1-2 drops of Essential Oils which will diffuse over the hours.  All components are high quality antiqued silver. French hooks are stainless steel.

I add a drop of my favorite essential oil to my finger tips then massage the oil into the back side of the lava beads. The oil should slowly diffuse over a couple of hours, then reapply.

Aquamarine--For the March Ladies






Welcome Aquamarine, the birthstone of March, with its rich color symbolic of youth, health and hope. It's mesmerizing color ranges from pale to deep blue and are reminiscent of the sea. Aquamarine creates a beautiful accent to spring and summer wardrobes.

Let me share a Magpie favorite with you on this opening day of March. 

This antiqued silver chain is the perfect foil to the dazzling faceted blue quartz pendant and evocative of an heirloom bijou. Travel far into the arctic and imagine the depth of the ice and what could be capture within. I am as fascinated with this shade of icy blue as I am with all things ice. But still want to stay warm! Would look great simply with jeans and a white or silver-gray t-shirt. Each piece is handmade to order, and due to the free form nature of wire wrapping, each pendant is a bit different.
