Dog Lover Paw Print and Heart Earrings, Pink Lampwork Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

The BEST FRIEND handmade earrings are a perfect jewelry gift for the dog lover, especially a woman who has a rescue dog (or two or more).  The one of a kind earrings feature artisan copper paw print in a heart charms, transparent pink lampwork glass beads, also artisan handmade, and white Swarovski crystals.  The meaningful charms were artisan created from beginning to end from precious metal clay, an artist's clay, that, when kiln fired, leaves pure copper. Since each round dangle was molded, shaped and carved one-by-one, you can tell from the photos there are slight differences from one charm to the other.  After the kiln firing, the charms were given a patina and then polished for an aged, rustic look. If you look closely at the photos, you'll notice the hearts and paw prints were impressed into the copper, creating lovely texture. The hearts are recessed while the paw prints are raised in the middle of the hearts. The backside of the charms are slightly textured (see photo # 8).  The glowing copper dangles were carefully wire wrapped with copper wire to connect to the upper part of the earrings.
 

To add a warm glow to the BEST FRIEND dog earrings, gorgeous pink rose quartz lampwork glass beads and white Swarovski crystals were used.  The lampwork glass beads were each created individually from transparent light pink glass (called “rose quartz” after the gemstone) with a high gloss finish.  The color is soft and lovely, a perfect complement to the glow of the copper. And because the lampwork beads are transparent, they are glorious when back lit.  Sitting on top of each lampwork bead, separated by a copper daisy spacer, is an opaque faceted Swarovski crystal bicone called “white alabaster,” adding subtle sparkle.  Sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents finish the unique earrings. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the BEST FRIEND dog rescue earrings were created for the woman who wants to show her love for her four footed companion(s).

 
***  Please note:  when sold, one half (1/2) of the purchase price of the BEST FRIEND dog paw prints and hearts earrings 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.  Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development. Even though man made, glass and crystals 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 BEST FRIEND 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!
