Gathering Moss.

While a rolling stone may gather no moss, these earrings reflect just the opposite using the natural beauty of moss jasper. Moss jasper is also known as serpentine stone because of the cork-like or reptilian variations within the stone. Yesterday I was bitten by the earring fairy and conjured up 5 pairs of earrings.

The Gathering Moss Earrings are available now in my Etsy shop: Biologie - Inspired By Sunshine & Science.

Within the next 5 days I'll be uploading and listing four more pair of unique earrings, all handmade by yours truly.



  1. Hey!

    I just wanted to say that we're fans of YOURS, too! We love your work, especially your Cherry Blossoms Necklace! My wife has looked at it several times... I just wish we could afford it! :)

    Keep up the good work!

  2. Hi you! Thanks for the compliment on my necklaces. I'm so glad you stopped by and said hello. :)

    Take Care!

  3. Those are so pretty, Kel! The stones look like the Russian Serpentine beads I bought in Florida and would go with the bracelet I made recently. Yes, they do resemble moss. Are they some of the beads you bought at the bead show we went to? Can't wait to see the rest of the earrings you made. Send that earring fairy my way!

  4. Beautiful earrings and I really like the way you photographed them. It's unique, but it doesn't detract from the earrings.

  5. Kalona, the moss jasper beads were a gift from Sandy & Dave. I've been stewing over what to do with them and when I found the opaque baby bell flowers they looked perfect with the stone. Moss jasper is also called Serpentine Stone so it's probably the same kind of gemstone that you made your bracelet out of just from different sources. They really would go great together! You need to open an Etsy shop. :)

    Threads, thanks for your comment about the way I took the photo. The shape of champagne corks are fun and I was looking for a good way to "hang" the earrings!

    Take care you two!
