Boho Sun Earrings, Orange Red Green Handmade Enamel Jewelry Gift

Item Description

Filled to the brim with vivid boho vibes, the colorful SANTA FE SUNS handmade earrings will positively cheer you up every time you put the beauties on!  The lightweight, one of a kind earrings feature enameled half sun charms, Swarovski crystals, copper and sterling silver. The colorful sun charms were individually handmade, starting out as copper blanks in a five-rayed half sun design.  Enamel glass powders in orange, red and green were permanently fused to the copper blanks using a high temperature butane torch. The back side of the charms was fused with black glass powders. As you can see in the photos, the colors are Santa Fe vibrant and the finish is extremely glossy.  Perfect jewelry for those long summer days!
To give the colorful sun earrings great movement and sparkle at each turn of the head, five links of copper chain was used, connected to the charms with copper jump rings.  Wire wrapped to the middle link of each chain is a mega-glitter faceted Swarovski crystal bicone. The color is called “fire opal,” a bright orange that shades to red, like the colors you might see in a fire.  It’s a perfect complement to the orange and red found in the enamel sun charms. A pair of sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bicone accents finishes the unique earrings. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the one of a kind SANTA FE SUNS earrings were created for the woman who adores colorful artisan boho jewelry!

The sun represents energy, life, strength and spiritual intelligence.  Even though man made, crystals (glass) 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 colorful SANTA FE SUNS 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!
