Dragonfly Boho Earrings Pink Yellow White Lightweight Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Cheerful and colorful with a pair of dancing dragonflies, the DANZA LIBELLULA handmade boho earrings are a perfect gift for the woman who loves the amazing creatures.  Lightweight to wear, they feature artisan polymer clay dragonfly teardrops, artisan lampwork glass beads and faceted Czech glass along with lead free pewter bead caps and sterling silver.  The dragonfly dangles were created individually from white polymer clay in an upside down teardrop design.  The dragonflies are raised against the background for wonderful texture and then were hand colored in joyful shades of bright pinks, sunny yellows, sky blues and leafy greens with some of the white base showing through to highlight the colors.  The sides and the smooth backs of the teardrops are yellow.  Since the teardrops were individually handmade, they are very similar in design but not exactly the same.
To perfectly complement the exquisite dragonfly teardrops and to add translucent glow and subtle sparkle to the overall design, raspberry red lampwork beads and faceted Czech glass were used.  The lampwork beads were artisan handmade from clear glass with a raspberry red frit added to give a speckled appearance.  Because the glass is translucent, the glow they provide is amazing.  A leafy lead free pewter bead cap tops the lampwork bead. Sitting on top of each lampwork bead is a pale yellow Czech glass bead.  Since the beads are faceted the sparkles and shine with sunny translucency.  Both have the same leaf design bead caps on the top and bottom.  A 3 mm sterling silver bead sits on top of the stacks.  The unique earrings are finished with sterling silver French hook earwires.   Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the DANZA LIBELLULA earrings are perfect for the woman who loves dragonflies and one of a kind boho style jewelry.  “Danza libellula” is Italian for “dragonfly dance.”

Dragonflies are said to carry the wisdom of transformation and adaptability in life; they are often viewed as messengers between the gods and humans.  Even though man made, glass and crystals 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 DANZA LIBELLULA boho 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!
