Cross Earrings, Copper Lampwork Spirals Christian Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

What unique jewelry for the woman who loves Christian cross earrings!  The HIS LOVE one of a kind, handmade cross earrings feature eye catching artisan copper cross dangles and beautiful lampwork glass beads.  The copper dangles were individually artisan created and are actually three pieces connected together.  The circular back was hand cut from pure copper sheeting, the edges filed to a silky smoothness.  The circle is slightly concave and has a hammered and scratched design.  A single copper cross hangs in front of the circles - each is “loose” so the crosses can sway back and forth at each movement of the head when worn.  The hand formed double copper spirals are found at the top of the crosses to add even more eye appeal.  All of the copper pieces were given a rich patina for a wonderfully aged, rustic look.  
 
Just above the spirals are artisan made lampwork glass beads.  The beads were created from a translucent rich blue borosilicate glass.  While the glass was still hot, sage green with bits of raspberry glass was wound around the middle.  As you can see in the photos, the lampwork beads are very similar, but because they were handmade, they are also somewhat different.  Two copper daisy spacers and a 3 mm copper bead are stacked above the lampwork bead.  Everything was rustically wire wrapped with a double strand of copper wire and attached to sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs the HIS LOVE earrings are both meaningful and stylish - a perfect gift for the woman who adores Christian cross jewelry.

Crosses are a symbol of the atonement and reminds Christians of God's love in sacrificing his own son for humanity.  Even though man made, glass carries the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  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 believed to be a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.

 

The HIS LOVE cross 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!
