A pair of Whitby jet teardrop shaped ear drops, mounted on sterling silver ear wires.
The jet has been fine smooth finished and polished to a deep black shine.
The front face of the drops is "puffed", or cabochon cut, with the reverse flat.
Whitby jet is a warm and silkily smooth gemstone formed from the fossilised remains of prehistoric monkey puzzle trees.
All the jet used in my jewellery is found on the beach here at Robin Hood's Bay and is worked close by.
