Want something different?? These raw, natural stone studs have a copper bezel "grown" around it using electroforming.

Don't know what "electroforming" is? Electroforming is a chemical and electrical process that is used for deposition of metal onto a cathodic substrate. We start with an electrolyte solution, hang some recycled copper wire into it (anode), add an apatite stone with conductive paint on it (cathode), turn on the electricity and wait for 8 hours! It's really cool, the copper ions move from the wire and are deposited onto the earring! We also like painting the back of the stone with a reflective coating prior to electroforming just to help that stone "light up" in the sun. Each finished stud is sealed to enhance the look and protect the color. The natural stones we use and the nature of "electroforming" insures that the pair you buy will be one of a kind!
