Handcrafted Water Jug Earrings. Our 2-inch Water Jug Earrings are stylish basics that you can wear to the office. A smooth cylinder-shaped brass bead sits between two howlite semi-precious stones. Howlite is a white gemstone with grey veining that was discovered in Nova Scotia in the mid 1800s. It has a reputation as a calming stone that is used to relieve the stresses of modern life. Here howlite gives these handcrafted earrings a cool, professional quality that can accent neutral colored blouses and blazers.
