Dog Paw Print and Heart Earrings, Copper Lampwork Crystals Handmade Pet Jewelry
Are you looking for the perfect gift for a woman who loves her rescue dog(s)? The LOVING DOGS handmade earrings are perfect. And when sold, 50% of the purchase price is donated to the local Humane Society. The rustic, one of a kind earrings feature copper heart paw print charms that were created by Kristi of KristiBowmanDesign from copper precious metal clay. The charms are beautifully heart shaped, a meaningful design. Impressed into the copper hearts is another heart with a raised dog paw print in the middle. Since the paw prints are handmade, they are very similar but are also a bit different as you can see in the photos. The heart and paw print charms are carefully wire wrapped on copper wire to the upper part of the earrings.
The lampwork glass beads are also individually handmade by glass artist Charlotte of Covergirlbeads. The beds started out as molten glass in a pale amethyst purple color. To create a glowing, frosted sea glass effect, the beads were acid etched and feel velvety to the touch. Copper rondelles set with sparkling Czech crystals were added above the lampwork beads. Nestled into the top of the rondelles, color shifting faceted opal glass adds a magical feel. The earrings were finished with sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the LOVING DOGS earrings will make a meaningful gift for any woman who adores dogs.

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, crystal and glass 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 LOVING DOGS rescue dogs 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!
