Elephant Earrings, Ivory Copper Lime Green Pink Handmade Jewelry Gift

Item Description

Sweetly whimsical and so much fun the ELEFANTESSA handmade earrings are a perfect gift idea for any woman who loves majestic, captivating elephants.  The one of a kind earrings feature rustic, rich ivory colored elephant shaped Czech glass beads, opalized lime green melon beads and pink Swarovski crystals.  The elephant beads are two sided, one side looking as if the elephants have their eyes closed and the other side with their eyes open.  The trunk of each elephant is raised, curving back towards the ears  To bring out the amazing details of the beads and to give a vintage look, a copper Picasso finish was applied and then polished off, leaving the copper in the recessed areas.  Because the Czech elephant beads are two sided, the earrings are delightful from any angle.
To add color and texture, stacked above the elephant beads are opalized lime green Czech glass melon beads and pink Swarovski crystals.  The opalized lime green melons are ridged and are translucent so they glow amazingly when the earrings are worn.  With a light aurora borealis coating, the melon beads also have a color shifting gleam as you can see in the photos.  Above each melon bead, separated by a small copper bead, is a faceted Swarovski crystal bicone in a color called “light rose,” a luscious pink color.  The crystals might be on the smaller side but do they ever sparkle!  All of the elements used to create the one of a kind earrings were strung on a copper head pin, wire wrapped and connected to sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents.  Created for the woman who loves wearing unique, one of a kind elephant jewelry, the ELEFANTESSA earrings were carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs.  “Elefantessa” is Italian for a “female elephant.”

Elephants have been revered throughout history; they are symbols of strength, royalty, a connection to ancient wisdom, commitment and wisdom.   Even though man made, glass is said to carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Copper is believed to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development. Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is believed to be a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.


The unique ELEFANTESSA 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!
