Made of 18k gold vermeil and bezeled aquamarine, hook earrings. Designed by Sarah Richardson of San Rafael, CA.
Sarah Richardson’s jewelry is a process of evolving designs. Drawn to the organic quality of each individual pod, a repetition of these elements creates geometric form. Using traditional wax carving techniques, each piece is hand carved, then cast in 18KY gold or sterling. Using heat to bring the fine metal to the surface, each piece is then polished on the edges creating an interior glow.
All pieces are finely crafted using recycled sterling, 18K gold & platinum and ethically sourced stones. Any pieces which are vermeil are plated in a heavy 18K gold over sterling, with gold fill chains, to ensure long-lasting quality.

CARING FOR YOUR JEWELRY
Sterling silver can tarnish due to exposure to oxygen. When not worn, jewelry is best stored in an air-tight container such as a zip-closed plastic bag.
To clean jewelry, first wash all oils and debris from jewelry using warm/hot water, dish soap, and an old soft toothbrush(avoid brushing pearls), then dry jewelry.
If needed, a jewelry cleaner such as Tarn-X is recommended.
If there are stones or pearls, DO NOT dip the whole piece of jewelry. Using a cotton swab or small paint brush, apply cleaning solution to sterling around stones and pearls, while carefully avoiding them.
Also, AVOID getting any jewelry cleaner on areas that are oxidized black with a patina. Always rinse your jewelry thoroughly with sudsy water and dry well after using a cleaning solution.
