Christmas Tree Earrings, Green Crystals Handmade Holiday Jewelry Gift

Item Description

Filled with the magic and wonder of Christmas trees on a snowy day, the perfectly named O TANNENBAUM earrings will become favorite holiday jewelry for years to come.  The beautiful one of a kind earrings feature artisan created, vintage look Christmas trees and snow charms and sparkling emerald green Swarovski crystals. The eye catching Christmas tree dangles look like they were cut from from old cookie or tea tins. But they only mimic upcycled vintage tins since they were individually hand cut, filed and sanded from modern copper. A permanent metal transfer was applied to the round copper cut outs and then sealed for years of wearing pleasure.  The round dangles feature snow flocked green Christmas trees with three rings of snow and a slightly leaning snowball on top. The charms have a light aqua blue background with snowflakes falling here and there. If you look closely, you can see that the tree design is actually a mirror image. The back of the Christmas tree dangles is smooth, shiny copper which will gradually gain a patina over time. Because the charms are made from copper, the earrings are very lightweight to wear.
Since all Christmas jewelry needs a huge dose of incredible sparkle, two sizes of faceted Swarovski crystal bicones were stacked above the Christmas tree charms.  The color is a rich green called “emerald” which perfectly highlight the green of the trees. Since the bicones somewhat mimic the conical shape of the trees, a copper bicone bead was chosen to continue that idea by separating the crystals.  Sterling silver French hook earwires with added copper bicone bead accents to finish the earrings. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the O TANNENBAUM earrings are a thoughtful gift for the woman who loves unique Christmas jewelry.  “Tannenbaum” is German for “Christmas tree.”

Evergreen trees, especially fir trees, have been used in religious winter-holiday celebrations for thousands of years, both pagan and Christian.  Pagans used branches to decorate their homes during the winter solstice as a reminder that spring will come. Christians use it as a symbol of everlasting life with God.  Even though man made, crystals (glass) carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication. Copper allows 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 O TANNENBAUM 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!
