Blue Black Dragonfly Earrings, Handmade Indigo Swarovski Crystal Copper Artisan Jewelry
With their luscious jet blue and black dragonfly beads, sparkling indigo Swarovski crystals and glowing copper, the one of a kind BLUE DRAGONFLY earrings are filled with eye catching loveliness. The handmade, nature inspired earrings feature Czech glass coin beads with a dragonfly image impressed into the front and back. The opaque glass is a mix of blue and black with a high gloss finish. A silky lighter blue Picasso finish was applied to bring out the lovely detail of the dragonflies and adds a rustic look to the overall design. As you can see in the photos, each side of the dragonfly beads is different in the amount of blue and black that can be found - this is the norm in most high quality Czech glass beads. A copper daisy spacer was placed at the top and bottom of each coin bead.
To complement the jet blue color of the dragonfly beads and to add great sparkle, a single 6 mm faceted Swarovski crystal bicone was used. The color is called “indigo,” an opulent color of dark blue. A 2 mm copper bead was placed on top of each crystal. All of the elements used to design the dragonfly earrings were strung on a copper headpin, wire wrapped and then attached to sterling silver French hook earwires. Two small copper bead were added to each earwire for extra adornment. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the BLUE DRAGONFLY earrings were made for the woman who loves unique, artisan dragonfly jewelry.

Dragonflies are said to carry the wisdom of transformation and adaptability in life; they are often viewed as messengers between the gods and humans. Even though man made, glass and crystals carry 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 BLUE DRAGONFLY 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!
