Cross Earrings, Labradorite Purple Silver Handmade Christian Jewelry

Item Description

The one of a kind FOR HIS LOVE earrings are a meaningful gift for the woman who loves to wear unique, handmade cross jewelry.  Created with rustic-look Czech glass cross beads and labradorite gemstones with an unexpected play of color, the earrings are absolutely stunning when worn.  The rectangular shaped cross beads started out as translucent lavender purple colored glass with a hint of gray.  A Christian cross design was pressed into both sides of the beads.  The crosses are raised against the background providing wonderful texture.  The beads were tumbled to give them an aged look with “pits” and “chips” and then a silver metallic Picasso finish was applied.  The silver finish was left in the recessed areas once the beads were fire polished to highlight the crosses.  Because of the rustic look, each side of the cross beads are a bit different as you can see in the photos.  Sterling silver daisy spacers cap the top and bottom of each cross bead. Since the cross beads are two sided and translucent, they glow from any angle when worn
 
To perfectly complement the cross, faceted gray labradorite gemstone rondelles were chosen.  Labradorite is absolutely amazing because when the light hits it just right, there are bewitching flashes of iridescence, known as labradorescence, in the translucent gray gemstone.  The flashes in these gemstones are an icy, silvery blue with a bit of gold here and there - absolutely breathtaking when the light hits them perfectly.  And, since they are faceted, the also add subtle sparkle to the design.  A sterling silver daisy spacer and a small sterling bead are found on top of each gemstone.  Sterling silver French hook earwires finish the unique earrings.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the FOR HIS LOVE earrings will be worn time and time again, bth for the meaningfulness and their beauty.

Crosses are a symbol of the atonement and remind 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. Labradorite is believed to be a stone of spiritual growth; it is said to increase mental illumination and imagination.  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 FOR HIS LOVE handmade 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!
