Melon & Rind
If you could take a cantaloupe out of its rind without cutting it open, the remaining pieces would look a little bit like this. Both the melon and the rind have a brushed, matte texture. They hang from ear hooks with a bead and wire wrap accent. This pair is very lightweight and easy to wear.

Silver, oh silver. This lustrous white metal is amazing - more reflective than gold, more conductive than copper and just plain gorgeous. When used for jewelry, silver is mixed with copper or zinc to provide more durability and reduce tarnishing. Fine silver is 99.9% silver while sterling silver is 92.5%. Other alloys are used for specific processes, such as reticulation (80% silver). All silver will tarnish over time, but can be easily cleaned and polished.
