Boho Chandelier Cross Earrings, Rustic Green Verdigris Mykonos Handmade Dangle Jewelry
The BOHO BEAUTIES handmade earrings have so many stylish, fun design elements going for them that you will want to wear them constantly! What first catches your eye are the ancient looking, turquoise green patina Mykonos chandelier pieces with a beautiful rounded cross design. Hanging from the gypsy-inspired charms are jauntily swinging lines of Picasso finish Czech glass beads in weathered turquoise, teal and striped beige. Perfect earrings for your trip to Coachella or whenever the boho spirit overtakes you, the BOHO BEAUTIES earrings were carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs.

The beautiful charms used in the BOHO BEAUTIES earrings were carefully made on the Greek island of Mykonos from pewter with a copper finish. Artists from Mykonos have been making similar pieces there for centuries now. The round charms feature a raised rounded cross design with circles and dots for lovely texture. A copper "rivet" is centered on each charm. The Mykonos cross charms were given a rich turquoise green patina for an ancient look, which settled in the background leaving the cross design and rivet the natural antiqued copper color. The back of the charms are smooth with just a trace of of the patina against the copper.
To add even more rustic glamor to the handmade earrings, Czech glass beads with an aged Picasso finish were carefully wire wrapped on hand hammered (by me) copper wire. Four lines of Czech beads swing and sway from each charm. The outside lines have five beads; the inside pairs have six beads. The colors range from a dark teal to turquoise to beige with stripes. The beads swing and sway each time your head moves - beautifully fun!
To finish the BOHO BEAUTIES gypsy earrings, the charms were connected to sterling silver French hook earwires with two copper jump rings to allow for even more movement. To add a professional finish, a copper bicone accent was added to each earwire.

Pewter is believed to be very grounding, bringing the wearer back to reality. Even though man made, glass carries 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 BOHO BEAUTIES handmade earrings will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
