I use natural gemstone and sterling silver components in the jewelry I make. Earring wires and components are sterling silver. Gold earwires are 14k gold-filled. Other beads include ceramic, India glass and African glass beads.
The only stones that are dyed are the black agate. The rose quartz beads are pale pink, natural stones, not always easy to find.
