The colorful fan shaped charms, created by Susan Silverman,  started out as copper blanks.  Aqua, lavender and orange pebeo paint, a special paint that mixes itself, was applied to the fans.  As you can see in the photos, when the paints intertwined, a mystical effect happened that is reminiscent of colorful boiling bubbles.  And to add even more unexpected beauty, the paint has subtle sparkles.  Since the results of the mixing is always unpredictable, the fans are similar but also original in their unique paint design.  Several layers of a glossy resin coating that looks like glass was applied to protect the paint.  The back of the earrings is smooth copper.

 

Stacked on top of the pebeo paint fans are aqua opal Czech glass cruller beads and Swarovski crystal bicones.  The premium quality Czech glass crullers, because of being made of translucent aqua opal glass, seem to glow from within, especially when worn.  The top and bottom of the crullers are ridged and the center is faceted for sparkle.  To bring out the lovely detail of the cruller beads, a brown Picasso finish was added which settled in the creases.  The Swarovski crystals are a rich orange color called “sun.”  They add great glitter to the earring design - just imagine their sparkle every time you move your head!  All of the elements used to create the FANDANGO handmade earrings were carefully wire wrapped on copper wire and attached to sterling silver French hooks earwires.  Copper bead accents were added to each earwire for a professional finish.

 


Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.   Although man made, glass and crystals are said to 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 FANDANGO artisan 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!
