Colorful Boho Handmade Teardrop Spike Earrings, Circles Fuchsia Pink Polymer Clay Jewelry
The CARNIVAL OF COLOR handmade earrings definitely have a fun and funky vibe for whenever you want to get your boho on! The eye catchingly colorful teardrop spikes were artisan created from white polymer clay, making the one of a kind earrings very light and durable to wear. The inverted teardrops were colored with artist chalks and heat set paint for a cheerful variety of colors: fuchsia pink, yellow, orange, pale green, aqua blue and others. Then circles were inscribed into the clay, showing the white base color, and a black dot was painted into each one. The back of each teardrops is a mottled bright fuchsia pink. Several layers of a matte varnish was applied to protect the teardrops and to keep the colors bright. The teardrops were carefully wire wrapped onto the end of a length of copper wire.
To highlight the fuchsia pink of the spikes, rustic raspberry pink Czech glass nuggets were added. The nuggets are faceted with an English cut to catch the light. To add even more dazzling beauty, a shimmering metallic copper Picasso finish was lightly spread over the beads. These beauties come alive in the sunlight which you can see in the photos showing the earrings hanging. The glass nuggets were lightly tumbled for a unique rustic look. Wavy copper discs cap the top and bottom of the nuggets and copper beads in two sizes were stacked on top. A “fuchsia” Swarovski crystal was added to each sterling silver earwire for even more sparkle. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the CARNIVAL OF COLOR artisan earrings are for the woman who loves fun, gypsy inspired jewelry.

Even though man made, glass and crystals 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 one of a kind CARNIVAL OF COLOR gypsy 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!
