A hypotrochoid is a roulette shape traced by a point attached to the radius of one circle rolling inside the radius of another circle; a Spirograph by another name. These earrings feature spirodoodles on silver plated brass rounds with sterling silver links with iolite and sparkling Swarovski dark indigo crystals. Despite their length, the earrings are lightweight and the beads and sterling silver links on the back of the drops add interest to the earrings viewed from the front or back. Plus, these spirodoodles remind me of wings.

Cost: $26.00 USD

You will be charged $4.95 USD for each recipient other than yourself and you'll need to add the recipient name and address to the gift box text field.

Length: earrings - approximately 1"


  • silver plated brass 1" rounds with glaze
  • iolite beads
  • Swarovski crystal beads
  • sterling silver links
  • sterling silver earwires

Care & cleaning: Clean with warm soapy washcloth (do not submerge) and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on silver.

Hard tugging on the drops is likely to warp or break the connection to the earwires so I recommend keeping these out of the reach of children. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.
