Slender Sprout Chain Earrings with Turquoise Clusters

Long, dangly earrings composed of my handmade "sprout" chain in argentium sterling silver with a cluster of faceted turquoise midway down their length. These measure just under 3 1/4 inches in length.

Argentium sterling silver is a silver alloy where most of the copper has been replaced by germanium which lends greatly enhanced tarnish resistance over standard sterling. It is .935 silver--more pure silver than .925 sterling. In addition, argentium sterling is produced using only recycled silver.
