Cat Lover Kitty Earrings, Green Gold Orange Copper Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Perfect jewelry for the cat lover, the PRETTY KITTY handmade earrings are sure to be a huge hit for the woman who adores her kitties, especially if they are rescues.  The fun earrings feature vintage-look Czech glass cat beads, orange spiny oyster shell, copper and sterling silver.  The sweet cat coin-shaped beads were made in the Czech Republic from clear glass with an olivine green cloud glass mixed in.  While still in a molten stage, a recessed cat image was pressed into the glass on both sides.  A metallic golden Picasso wash was added to bring out the incredible details of the kitties and highlight the rustic glass finish that looks as if it’s filled with cracks and pockmarks.  The cats look very wise sitting there with their pricked up ears and upswept tail and long whiskers.  Because the glass is translucent, the cat beads glow brilliantly when worn, as you can see in photos #2, #4 and #6.  The cat earrings look wonderful from any angles since the glass coins are two sided.
To complement the olivine green and gold cat beads, lovely orange spiny oyster shell rondelles were stacked above the kitties,each separated by a copper disc spacer..  As the name implies, the rondelles were hand cut from the shell of a species of oyster with fierce spines and have been made into beads for thousands of years.  The shell beads are a luscious mixture of medium orange and off white, each similar but also a bit different.  Sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents finish the smile inducing earrings.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the PRETTY KITTY earrings make a thoughtful jewelry gift for the cat lover and are sure to become favorite earrings worn often.

Cats represent patience and independence. Even though man made, glass and crystals are said to carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Orange spiny oyster shell is said to carry comfort and peace of mind; it’s believed to increase the wearer’s knowledge, patience and understanding of the rhythms of Nature.  Copper is believed 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 PRETTY KITTY handmade 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!
