The glowing pewter shields used in the LA DOLCE VITA earrings are absolutely eye catching. Made in the U.S. from high quality, lead free pewter, they are based on classic Balinese granulation metal design. Granulation is basically small dots of metal placed on a larger piece to create a design. If you take a close look at the photos above, you will notice a large circular dot of silvery pewter in the middle of the shields, the center of the flower motif. Small dots then were used to create a negative outline of the flower petals. Larger dots circle the edge of the shields. The pewter was oxidized and then polished leaving the recessed areas darker, a perfect complement to the radiant raised areas. The shields are slightly domed and mostly smooth on the back, although there are a few oxidized indentations due to the creation of the design on the front. Because the shields were made from high grade pewter, they have the lustrous look of old heirloom sterling silver . . . without the sterling price!
 
To add mega sparkle to the overall jewelry design, two colors of faceted Swarovski crystal dangles were added below the Bali style shields:  “light peach” and “light rose” pink.  Three dangles of three crystals were carefully wire wrapped to connect to the floral shields.  The two outer dangles are stacked with two light peach crystals at the top and bottom and a light rose crystal in the middle.  The center dangle is just the opposite:  two light rose crystals separated by a light peach crystal.  Each stack of crystals is capped at the top and bottom with small sterling silver beads.
 
To finish the LA DOLCE VITA earrings, sterling silver French hook earwires were attached to the top of the shields.
 

Pewter is believed to be very grounding, bringing the wearer back to reality.  Even though man made, crystals carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  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 LA DOLCE VITA 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!
