Shark Tooth and Lapis Lazuli Earrings
** Untamed Mermaid Collection **
Add some ocean energy to your life and feel like a mermaid!
These shark teeth were given to me by my late mother, and I love incorporating them into my electroforming art in her honor.
I gave new life to these shark teeth by adding tiny Lapis Lazuli gemstones and then copper electroforming them into beautiful, unique oceanic earrings.
See last photo for size reference.
All copper will eventually oxidize and tarnish with time and wear, but the copper on these earrings have also been coated with a metal specific protective varnish to extend the life of the natural copper shine.
There are many easy techniques to bring back the lustrous copper shine such as a simple rub of a jewelry cloth, soaking in vinegar, soaking in lemon or lime juice, and even using ketchup!
Lapis Lazuli is one of the most sought after stones in use since man's history began. Its deep, celestial blue remains the symbol of royalty and honor, gods and power, spirit and vision. It is a universal symbol of wisdom and truth. Lapis Lazuli is a powerful crystal for activating the higher mind and enhancing intellectual ability. It stimulates the desire for knowledge, truth and understanding, and aids the process of learning. It is excellent for enhancing memory.
A stone of truth, Lapis encourages honesty of the spirit, and in the spoken and written word. Wear it for all forms of deep communication. It is also a stone of friendship and brings harmony in relationships.
Copper is an excellent conductor of energy, from electricity to the mystical subtle energies emanating from higher planes. Copper is said to enhance and transmit thoughts, even over long distances. Copper also enhances the properties of the other crystals around it, so using copper in conjunction with other stones is highly beneficial to the wearer.
Electroforming is a very time intensive process that produces unique results with each piece having it's own beautiful textured characteristics. Each piece takes 24-48 hours just to create the copper plating, and days of prep work before and after receiving that beautiful copper energy. Lots of love and attention goes into each of my copper electroformed pieces, and I hope you enjoy them!
