Bird Lover Earrings, Boho Blue White Vintage Look Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Looking for fun handmade jewelry for the woman who loves birds and / or is a birder?  These one of a kind BIRDS OF A FEATHER earrings are perfect, guaranteed to make the recipient smile!  Created with sweet copper bird charm dangles, unique Czech glass beads, copper and sterling silver, they will quickly become favorites for the bird lover on your gift list.  The delightful bird dangles look as if they are vintage jewelry pieces, but they are “faux vintage,” made to look well-worn and well-loved.  The charms were created from modern copper: individually hand cut into a round shape, filed for silky smooth edges and sanded.  A permanent metal transfer was applied and then the charms were sealed for years of wearing pleasure.  The image on both charms is a colorful bird against an “antiqued” white background.  The colorful dotted birds have a medium blue breast, stomach and tale, wings that shade from a pale to dark brown and a pale blue head.  Both birds are facing the same way, to the left.  Since the bird charms were individually handmade, there are slight differences which add wonderful rustic, antique vibes.  The backside of the dangles are shiny copper.  These earrings are VERY lightweight to wear
 
To perfectly highlight the charms, especially the color of the wings of the birds, translucent golden amber brown Czech glass beads hang above the dangles.  The beads are an unusual shape, like a slightly smashed oval with a hole in a concave center.  To give an aged look, a permanent Picasso finish was applied with a darker amber color and pale mossy lichen green. Because the beads are translucent, they positively glow when worn.  The Czech beads are connected to bird charms by a heavy duty copper jump ring.  They are rustically wire wrapped with copper wire to attach to sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the happy-looking BIRDS OF A FEATHER earrings were created for the woman who loves wearing lightweight artisan jewelry with a bird theme.

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 carries the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication. Copper allows 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 BIRDS OF A FEATHER 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!
