Aurora Borealis Earrings in Abalone Shell and Freshwater Pearls

Paua Abalone Shell and Fresh Water Pearl Earrings
The Aurora Borealis (aka. the Northern Lights) is a gorgeous natural light display that is observed within the night sky located over the northern polar region of the earth that's caused by the collision of charged particles directed by the Earth's magnetic field.

Inspired by the Northern Lights, this pair of handmade abalone shell earrings are designed with paua abalone shell disks dangling beneath genuine freshwater pearls.

Sterling silver completes the piece and this is part of an entire set entitled the "Northern Lights in a Midnight Sky" jewelry set. I'll be featuring the necklace and bracelet in this set later on as well!
