Dog Lover Lampwork Earrings, Artisan Glass Swarovski Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

If you are looking for meaningful handmade jewelry for the dog lover in your life, look no further than these BESTEST BOY earrings!  The one of a kind earrings feature artisan made dog face lampwork glass beads, Swarovski crystals and sterling silver.  The sweet, somewhat goofy, dog face glass beads were individually handmade with a base of creamy, marbled glass in a puffed somewhat oval coin shape (thicker in the middle than on the edges).  A raised dog’s muzzle was carefully built onto each of the glass coins, along with black spots.  Black eyes (one with a medium brown patch), dark brown ears and an eye-catching red tongue finish the whimsical beads with wonderful dimensional texture.  The back of each bead is mostly creamy marbled glass with a line of the brown ears showing.  As you can see, the dog faces are somewhat mirror images of each other, similar but also a bit different.  A sterling silver daisy spacer and small sterling bead caps the bottom of each dog face bead.    
To add an amazing amount of sparkle to the design of the dog earrings, a faceted Swarovski crystal bicone was added to the top of each lampwork bead.  The color is “light smoked topaz,” a pale smoky brown color, closely matching the patch around one of the dog’s eyes. Sterling silver French hook earwires finish the fun earrings.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the one of a kind BESTEST BOY earrings are a perfect gift for the woman who has a bestest four-footed good boy (or girl) in her life and loves to wear unique artisan jewelry.
***  Please note:  when sold, one half (1/2) of the purchase price of the BESTEST BOY dog rescue necklace will be donated to an animal rescue organization to help care for the four footed souls waiting for their furever home.

Dogs are a symbol of loyalty, friendship and unconditional love.  Ceramic is believed to be very transformative.  Through the centuries, hearts represent never ending love.  Although 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 BESTEST BOY artisan necklace was carefully designed and handmade in a dog friendly, smoke free studio.  The necklace will come with two informational drop tags: one with the piece's name; the other lists the materials used in the necklace and the language of the stones and metals. It will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
