I cut and hammered copper tubing to create these texturized connectors, and I dangled ruby zoisite from them.
Ruby in Zoisite is said to offer the energy of happiness, appreciation, abundance, vitality and growth. It is said to stimulate the heart and helps one to open to divine love. Zoisite is also thought to help to alleviate grief, anger, despair and defeat, and it is a powerful stone for deep healing by activating the body's defenses and healing mechanisms.
These earrings are 2 1/4 inches long from the top of my hand forged copper ear wires.
