These earrings were part of another production line, a series based on sea shell forms produced 1986 - 1992. Originally made in sterling and in gold filled, later using niobium. Niobium is one of the reactive metals; one of its properties being, that under certain conditions, it can be colored by sending an electrical current through the metal. In October of 1987 a pair of earrings like the ones shown above were used on a model on the cover of Glamour magazine.
