Aqua Brass Gold White Earrings, Painted Rustic Copper Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

What a stylish and lightweight pair of earrings to wear!  The one of a kind MAGNIFIQUE handmade earrings will definitely become your “go to” jewelry for spring and summer . . . and all the rest of the year.  Created with artisan made, hand painted brass diamonds, sparkling Czech glass beads, copper and sterling silver, they are fun and flirty with a vintage look to them.  The brass diamonds were hand cut, the edges filed to a silky smoothness and given a slight wavy ridged  texture.  Hand painted on both sides in a combination of aqua, gold and white, they look somewhat like a piece of modern splash art in the style of Jackson Pollock.  To add a fantastic rustic look, the diamonds were very lightly sanded to let a bit of the brass show along the ridges.  They were then sealed for many years of wearing joy.  Because the diamonds are painted on both sides, the earrings look fabulous from any angle.
To perfectly complement the painted diamond dangles, eye catching Czech glass beads, made in the Czech Republic, were added above.  The beads were created from clear glass and then coated with a metallic Picasso finish.  The finish flashes a whole range of colors from aqua to green to golden with bits of blue and orange thrown in when the light hits them just right.  You can see the color shift of the metallic finish in the photos.  The square beads are long faceted, creating v-shapes that allow the clear glass to show through for a unique 3-D effect.  Absolutely amazing!  The photos don’t do justice to their beauty at all.  A copper disc spacer caps the top and bottom of the Czech beads.  A single 3 mm copper bead rests on the top spacer.  Sterling silver French hook earwires with a copper bead accent finishes the exquisite earrings.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the MAGNIFIQUE, the well named earrings were created for the woman who loves unique artisan earrings that are eye-catching and lightweight to wear.  “Magnifique” is French for “magnificent.”

Brass is said to help develop strength of spirit. Although man made,  glass carries the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.  Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us. 

The one of a kind MAGNIFIQUE handmade earrings were carefully designed and handmade in a dog friendly, smoke free studio. They will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag with tissue, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
