Dotted Lampwork Earrings, White Aqua Purple Colorful Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Full of vibrant, fun-filled color, the MACCHIE handmade earrings are perfect jewelry accessories to wear with almost anything in your wardrobe, from dress up to dress down.  The one of a kind earrings are on the smaller side and  feature artisan made dotted lampwork glass beads, dark purple Czech glass beads, pewter bead caps and sterling silver.  The lampwork beads started out as opaque white glass.  While still in the molten stage, multi-colored frit was added causing vivid dots to form randomly across the white glass.  As you can see the colors of the spots are primarily various shades of aqua blues, turquoise, lime green, purple, orange, red and pink.  Since the dots form randomly, you can see that the lampwork beads are similar but are also different, each a unique work of art.  The photos show many different angles of the earrings so you can get a good idea of the array of spots.  To add an old silver gleam, pewter bead caps with a leaf design hug the top and bottom of the lampwork beads.
 
To perfectly complement the lampwork glass beads, and to highlight the lavender and purple dots, rustic translucent Czech glass druk beads were used.  These beads are a deep purple glass with a purple wash to add richness.  The beads have an etched matte finish and are rustically not “perfect.”   When the earrings are worn and backlit, the purple druk beads positively glow.  Sterling silver French hook earwires finish the beautiful earrings.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the MACCHIE lampwork glass earrings are a perfect gift for the woman who adores, fun, artisan handmade jewelry.  “Macchie” is Italian for “spots.”

Even though man made, glass is said to carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Pewter is believed to be very grounding, bringing the wearer back to reality.  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 colorful MACCHIE 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!
