Aqua Copper Flower Earrings, Hand Painted Lampwork Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Filled with smile inducing charm, the one of a kind FLORES BONITAS handmade earrings will quickly become favorites to wear!  The earrings feature artisan hand painted on copper daisy flower dangles and speckled aqua and brown lampwork earrings, also artisan handmade.  The beautiful copper flower charms were created from kiln-fired copper precious metal clay and are filled with textured swirls and petals on the upper part, almost looking like hand tooled leather.   What catches the eye are the single flower at the bottom of each dangle. The daisies were hand painted with a glowing aqua turquoise color for the petals, a lavender purple for the discs and a spot of orange right in the middle.  Because of their handmade nature, the flower dangles are very similar but not exactly the same. They are wire wrapped to the upper part of the earrings with copper wire.
To perfectly complement the daisy dangles, artisan made lampwork glass beads were used.  The lampwork beads started out as white glass. An aqua frit and one in brown were added while the white glass was still in its molten stage.  The frit adds unique color and effect to the beads, each one being unique in pattern. A copper daisy spacer was added to the top of each lampwork bead, along with a round and bicone bead, both of which are copper, and then wire wrapped with copper wire.   Sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents finish the exquisite earrings. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the FLORES BONITAS flower earrings were created for the woman who adores wearing artisan handmade flower jewelry.  “Flores bonitas” is Spanish for “pretty flowers.”

Flowers are a symbol of spiritual awakening; also they are symbols of generosity and love when they are given away. Even though 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 FLORES BONITAS artisan 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!
