Reddish-orange gemstones sit atop the metallic beauty of hematine*. These stones are one of the few remaining pairs left from a rescued gemstone necklace. Several other pairs have already found forever homes -- maybe these are destined for yours?


  • upcycled reddish orange gemstones
  • new hematine 8mm beads
  • new nickel-free ear wires

These one-of-a-kind earrings feature upcycled reddish-orange gemstone beads, one of which is a bit more translucent under direct light than the other. The stones are almost tomato red in the sunlight, with more of a brick red hue indoors. They both have some creamy white streaks in the red. These are possibly a form of agate, but because they are upcycled from an older necklace, I can't identify them with confidence.

Bear in mind that the earrings have two stones apiece, so they will be on the heavier side.

*Much (but not all) of the material commonly sold as hematite is actually hematine (a.k.a. hemalike) -- an artificial form of hematite.  Real hematite looks more like stone (with grain and color variations) and is more brittle than imitation. Real hematite is not magnetic. A small handful of our upcycled designs make use of hematine.

Threader Details:

All of our threader earrings are made using a length of smooth thin box chain (less than 1mm thick). The chains are long enough to thread through multiple piercings if you wish, and they do not have a bridge wire, which gives the wearer full control over their length. Although most people find that they don't need backings for threader earrings, we ship clear plastic safety backings with every pair.
