Colorful Abstract Art Earrings Polymer Clay Carnelian Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Big and bold with a breathtaking palette of vivid abstract art colors, the unique COLORES BRILLIANTES handmade earrings will definitely add a large dose of boho dazzle to your earlobes!  The rustic, one of a kind earrings feature very lightweight artisan polymer clay dangles and two shapes and sizes of orange carnelian gemstones.  The dangles were individually created from black polymer clay, freehand etched and then hand painted with glistening colors with a metallic sheen.  Bold curves and swirls are reminiscent of some of the more colorful art works of Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning and others.  Shimmering acrylic pigments in hot orange, gold, bronze, medium purple, turquoise blue and various greens were hand painted onto the dangles.  I just wish the photos could show the amazing shimmer these earrings have!  For a fun, boho look, the dangles are somewhat similar in design but are also uniquely different, as you can see in the photos.  After the final curing of the dangles, several layers of crystal protectant were applied. The back side of each dangle is also painted and is signed by the artist.  Since the dangles were created from polymer clay, the earrings are very lightweight to wear.
To perfectly complement the colors of the polymer clay dangles, orange carnelian gemstones were used.  Just above the dangles are beautiful orange carnelian hand carved rounds that suggest flowers.  The carbed rounds are mainly a rich medium orange but have natural lighter and darker swirls.  Just above each carved carnelian flower, separated by two copper disc spacers, is a carnelian disc, also a medium orange with lighter colored swirls.  Since both gemstones are translucent, they glow so prettily when the earrings are worn.  Sterling silver French hook earwires with a copper bead accent finishes the earrings beautifully.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the COLORES BRILLIANTES were created for the woman who loves bold jewelry with a definite abstract art boho look.  “Colores brilliantes” is Spanish for “brilliant colors.”

Believed to be a stabilizing gemstone, carnelian is said to stimulate creativity and promotes courage and positive life choices. Copper allows the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.  Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is believed to be a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.
