Dragonfly Earrings, Pewter Swirling Blue Handmade Jewelry Gift Women

Item Description

Named after a beautiful blue dragonfly that is found throughout a large portion of the United States, Canada and Mexico, the one of a kind BLUE DASHER dangle earrings are a perfect gift idea for the woman who adores watching the fantastic flight of dragonflies as they expertly dip and dash through the air.  The handmade earrings feature round pewter charms with a raised dragonfly design, swirling shades of blue glass beads and metallic blue Swarovski crystals. Just look at the detailing of the artisan designed and hand cast lead free dragonfly charms! To bring out the amazing texture of the raised design, the charms were given a dark, rustic patina and then polished, the raised areas left with a glowing silver color.  The back of the charms have a dark patina finish.

To perfectly mimic the real colors of the Blue Dasher dragonflies, swirling blue glass beads with facets and metallic blue Swarovski crystals were stacked above the charms.  The glass beads started out with a core of the palest blue (almost white) and then swirls of various shades of blue, black and light teal were added. The bead was then encased with clear glass and faceted for subtle sparkle.  To add even more intense sparkle, a rich “metallic blue” Swarovski crystal was added on top of the glass beads separated by a sterling silver daisy spacer. Sterling silver French hook earwires finish the earrings. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the BLUE DASHER dragonfly earrings were created for the woman who loves unique, one of a kind artisan jewelry.

Dragonflies are said to carry the wisdom of transformation and adaptability in life; they are often viewed as messengers between the gods and humans.  Pewter is believed to be very grounding, bringing the wearer back to reality.  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 BLUE DASHER handmade dragonfly 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!
