Aqua Teal Blue and Copper Handmade Earrings, Caribbean Czech Rivoli Saucer Artisan Jewelry
If you have ever been lucky enough to visit the Caribbean, you were probably entranced by the amazing color of the water. The CARIBBEAN CALM handmade earrings mimic the aqua teal blue color of the water as they dance and dangle from your ears. The one of a kind, vintage inspired earrings were created with faceted Czech glass Rivoli saucers that have a Picasso finish, leafy copper bead caps, copper hoops and sterling silver earwires. The rich aqua color of the translucent Czech beads is superbly eye catching, crisp facets around the middle adding sparkling flash. To add an antiqued feel to the Rivolis, a lovely Picasso finish in an array of browns, blues, taupe and gray was added to the top and bottom of the beads. Check out the photos to see how the Picasso finish perfectly highlights the aqua teal color of glass beads and adds great interest. Bright copper bead caps in a leafy design cap both ends of the saucer beads for an even greater vintage flair.
To add maximum movement to the earrings when worn, the saucer beads were carefully wire wrapped to copper loops. The flat sides of the loops catch the light, adding a warm glow for which copper is famous. The loops were connected to sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents for a classy finish to the overall design. Sparkly and translucent, the CARIBBEAN CALM artisan earrings were carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs for the woman who loves to wear one of a kind jewelry.

Even though man made, glass is said to carry the energy 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 CARIBBEAN CALM 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!
