Copper Daisy Flower and Pink Lampwork Earrings, Swarovski Handmade Dangle Jewelry
The whimsical MARGHERITA handmade earrings are perfect when you need an energizing boost of flower power. The earrings feature artisan made copper teardrops with a raised daisy flower design and pink lampwork glass beads. The teardrops were molded, shaped, carved and fired by the artist from beginning to end. Then daisy charms were heated with a torch to bring out the patina for which copper is famous. A darker patina formed on the background of the charms, highlighting the daisy design. To provide lots of dangle movement, the charms were carefully wire wrapped onto copper wire.
Handmade lampwork glass beads in a unique ridged flying saucer bicone shape were placed above the daisy teardrops. The flower inspired lampwork beads were created with a pale pink glass that has a violet tinge to it. Other colors swirl gracefully in the glass: darker pink, green, white and medium violet. Above the lampwork beads, two colors of sparkling Swarovski crystals were stacked. The bottom crystal is a lovely purple “tanzanite” and the upper is “violet opal.” Sterling silver earwires with copper bead accents finish the earrings. Perfect for a gardener or a woman who loves one of a kind flower jewelry, the MARGHERITA handmade earrings were carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs. “Margherita” is Italian for “daisy.”

Through the centuries, flowers have been a symbol of spiritual awakening; also they have been symbols of generosity and love when they are given away. Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development. Even though man made, glass and crystals are said to carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication. 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 MARGHERITA 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!
