Byzantine Stars Earrings

Here is a pair of earrings worthy of its name. Beautifully woven of an array of colorful anodized niobium rings, with sterling silver rings marking each point, and sterling silver chains trailing underneath. These darlings are a joy to have!

Although these earrings are based on the most classic Byzantine pattern, arranging 5 of them into a star shape, together with the long dangles, brings them into the 21th century.

The earrings measure at 2 1/2 inches long from the bottom of the sterling ear wires, 3/4 inch wide from point to point of the stars, and are made entirely of sterling silver and anodized niobium. The stars are solid but still light weight to wear comfortably throughout the day.

  1. LOVE these earrings Daisy!! I wish to do chainmaille too one day. I had bought this jumpring making-cutting thing from long back...years back. But there were no instructions on how to use it. I wish I was pretty expensive.
