Bird Earrings, Peeps Sandpipers Ivory Copper Handmade Birder Jewelry

Item Description

Unique for the woman who likes small but fun, eye-catching jewelry, the PEEPS handmade earrings are a perfect gift for the birder in your life or for the woman who just loves the beauty of birds, especially sandpipers, also called peeps.  The one of a kind earrings feature Czech glass coin shaped beads with an imprinted bird, copper bicones and sterling silver earwires.  The sweet coins were created in the Czech Republic from ivory glass that is slightly translucent.  A walking bird design, somewhat reminiscent of sandpipers (peeps) as they scurry along the beach, was pressed into both sides of the coins.  Then, to bring out the details of the peeps and to add a rustic look, the beads were covered with a metallic bronze Picasso finish.  They were then polished, leaving the bronze finish in the recessed areas and other tiny crannies.  As you can see in the photos, the birds on both sides are very similar but also different.  Since the bird beads are two-sided, they look fabulous from any angle.
A simple design was chosen to compliment the sandpiper bird coins.  Three copper bicones were stacked above the coins while a single copper bicone is found below.  The elements for each earrings was wire wrapped with a copper head pin and then connected to sterling silver French hook earwires.  A copper bicone was added to each earwire for added beauty.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the fun PEEPS earrings are a perfect gift for the bird lover who adores wearing one of a kind artisan jewelry.

Birds are considered to be signs of eternal life and mental illumination because of their ability to fly close to heaven.  Even though man made, glass is said to carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Copper is believed to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.  Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is believed to be a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.

The PEEPS sandpiper 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!
