Fox Flowers Earrings, Spring Summer Enamel Lampwork Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Filled with amazing whimsy and smile inducing charm, the FOX WITH FLOWERS handmade earrings are sure to warm the heart of whoever receives them as a gift.  Perfect for spring and summer wear - or anytime for the woman who loves foxes - the one of a kind earrings feature artisan-made smiling foxes with flowers enamel dangles.  Artisan pink lampwork glass beads, frosted yellow amber Czech glass rondelles, copper and sterling silver perfectly complement the colors of the dangles.  Individually artisan created, a snow white background was made onto copper circles with a layer of glass powder fused at extreme high heat.  A permanent fox and flower decal was added to each circle when the glass was still hot.  Then everything was kiln fused together at about 1475 degrees F  for a high gloss finish.  The design is sweet:  a smiling light amber and white fox wearing a crown of light pink and white flowers with green leaves.  A swag of flowers and greenery are found at the bottom.  The back of each dangle is finished in heathery medium blue enamel.  ***Please note:  Even though the enamel charms are very durable, they are actually glass fused to copper.  If a charm is dropped on a hard surface, the glass can chip or break.
Just above each fox and flower enamel charm is an artisan made lampwork glass beads and frosted  autumn yellow Czech glass disc beads.  The lampwork beads were created from a core of rich, translucent dark pink glass encased with light pink glass.  Since the lampwork beads were individually handmade, each glass bead is very similar but not exactly the same.  Stacked above each pink glass bead is a frosted, translucent yellow amber Czech glass disc, separated from the lampwork beads by a copper disc spacer.  Since both the lampwork glass beads and the amber discs are translucent, they positively glow when the earrings are worn.  A 3 mm copper bead rests on the upper disc.  Sterling silver French hook earwires with a copper bead accent finish the wonderful earrings.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the fun FOX WITH FLOWERS earrings will be a welcome jewelry gift for the woman who loves foxes, loves whimsical spring and summer earrings and loves wearing one of a kind artisan jewelry.

Foxes symbolize cleverness, slyness and are known in some cultures as being tricksters; in other cultures, such as the Celtic belief system, foxes are seen as a spirit guide, who helps navigate the spirit world and are symbols of spirituality, creation and the afterlife.  Even though man made, glass is said to carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Copper is used to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.  Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.
