Gotta-Have Earrings by John Brana

bra2John Brana’s jewelry collections are very distinctive. That they are designer is no question, but they are also exquisite hand crafted, the pieces generally completely unique and one of a kind.

Being a lover of most things amethyst, I was immediately struck by these Amethyst Wire Wrapped 14K Gold-filled Earrings. The polished spirals are filled with 14K gold, and then wrapped by hand with round beads of amethyst. The resulting dimension is quite daring.

The color is beautiful, and I love the design as well, even though I am not typically a fan of yellow gold.

This piece is part of John Bana’s Barbary Coast Collection, which encompasses many gorgeous pieces. It is filled with beads and gemstones, plenty of amethyst, amber, onyx, citrine, prehnite, and quartz, among other gems.
