Blue Spike Dagger Boho Earrings Enamel Red Coral Handmade Jewelry Gift

Item Description

If you love fabulously fun blue earrings in a boho spike or dagger design, then you’ll love the BELLISSIMO IN BLU handmade earrings.  The exquisite, one of a kind earrings were created with artisan enamel dangles, artisan speckled blue lampwork glass beads and red coral.  The gorgeously unique enameled dagger dangles were individually made from copper spikes.  To create the background, shiny enamel glass powders in a rich blue color were fused onto the copper with a hot torch.  Small bits of white glass powder were added to the lower part of the spikes to create falling "snow" or perhaps falling flower petals..  An Italian murrine glass cane was used to create the flower in the center top of each spike surrounded by lighter blue glass.  To add extra eye appeal and texture, four raised red glass dots encircle the top of the murrine flowers.  Since the dangles were individually handmade, they are very similar in design but not exactly the same.  The back of the discs are enameled in black for a professional finish.  Please note:  since the enamel design was created with high shine enamel glass, there is quite a bit of reflection in the photos.   Rest assured - the dangles are mainly a lovely blue with wonderful accents.
To perfectly complement the colors of the enamel daggers, artisan lampwork glass beads and red coral were used.  The lampwork glass beads were individually artisan handmade with a base of clear glass. While that glass was still molten, a glass frit with shades of blue was added, creating blue speckles. Since the base glass is clear, the lampwork beads positively glow a radiant blue when the earrings are worn.  To highlight the raised red glass dots on the spikes, red coral nuggets were added on top of the lampwork beads, separated by two sterling silver daisy spacers.  Another sterling spacer and a small sterling bead rest on top of each coral nugget.  Small red coral rounds were added to the sterling silver French hook earwires for extra fun.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the one of kind BELLISSIMO IN BLU earrings were created for the woman who adores unique spike jewelry with a definite boho flair!  "Bellisimo in blu" is Italian for "beautiful in blue."

Even though man made, glass carries the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Red Coral is used to help calm life, to restore harmony in the event of an emotional conflict.  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 believed to be a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.

The BELLISSIMO IN BLU spike 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!
