Voluspo: Chrysoprase donuts and 14k gold filled hook ear dangles

I designed these to be worn by the lovers of the ancient roots of body modification, through stretched ear tunnels or in naked stretched ears (ear weight style) They look really pretty worn in my rainbow titanium tunnels, and I can imagine them looking regal in gold plated or stone eyelets. 

But they could also be worn through normal ear piercings. 

My chosen pairing of green coloured stone and gold is a nod to tribal body art of many cultures and ancient civilisations. 

A pair of green chrysoprase stone donuts suspended on a gold plated brass chain with hand fabricated 14k gold filled wire findings and hooks. 'Gold filled' metal means it has a thicker coating of gold than plating, it's designed to not wear off, so the hook that would rub against your skin or a eyelet won't rub off with extended wear as quickly as plating. Good for people with metal allergies, gold is known to agree with your skin more than other materials. 

Chrysoprase gemstones size: approximately 20mm x 20mm x 4mm thick
