Frida Kahlo Art Earrings, Self Portrait Handmade Lightweight Jewelry

Item Description

The  FRIDA! handmade art earrings are perfect for any woman who adores paintings of the iconic Mexican artist.  Unique, one of a kind jewelry, the earrings are based on a 1947 full length self portrait, sometimes called “Between the Curtains,” dedicated to her friend Leon Trotsky.  In the painting, she wears a long peach and white embroidered skirt, fringed brown shawl and gold jewelry.  The Frida dangles used in the earrings are individually artisan created from high quality, rectangular-shaped black polymer clay with a permanent art transfer. For durability and shine, the dangles were given several coats of varnish (which sometimes show up as reflective white streaks in the photos - the white streaks are not there in real life).  The self portrait has been closely cropped to only show Frida’s regal face and a pink flower in her hair with a black border “frame” to highlight the art . The dangles are mirror images of each other, but in the original painting, she is gazing to the right.  The backside of the dangles are black and inscribed with the artist’s mark. Since the dangles are made from polymer clay, the earrings are very lightweight to wear.  To see the original painting, here’s a link:  https://www.fridakahlo.org/self-portrait-dedicated-to-leon-trotsky.jsp
 
Perfectly complementing the colorful dangles, premium Czech glass roller beads and faceted Czech glass beads were used.  The roller beads were created from a gorgeous magenta pink and clear glass mix with a luminous silver metallic center.  They have a rustic finish to add an aged look.  To add even more rich color, a single oval shaped fuchsia Czech glass bead sits on top of the stacked roller beads.  Since all the glass beads are faceted and translucent, they add great sparkle and glow to the design.  Sterling silver French hook earwires finish the earrings.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the one of a kind FRIDA! earrings are a perfect lightweight-to-wear jewelry gift for the woman who admires the vibrant art of Frida Kahlo.

Although man made, glass carries 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.
