Handmade Alice opal sterling silver stud earrings.
Opal is one of the October birthstones (Pink tourmaline is the other).
The Alice style is named for the chemist Alice Ball, the first African American and woman to earn a Master’s degree from and hold a professorship at the University of Hawaii. She revolutionized treatment for leprosy, which was a serious public health threat at the turn of the 20th century in Hawaii.
All pieces are created from start to finish in my home studio, nestled in one of Richland's historic "Alphabet Houses". The JH designs atomic logo is a nod to the history and science of the area.
Each piece of jewelry comes carefully packaged and gift wrapped with a signature blue satin ribbon.
