Frida Kahlo Art Earrings, Self Portrait Polymer Clay Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

The one of a kind PRECIOSA FRIDA handmade earrings are so very well named:  “”gorgeous Frida” or “precious Frida,” indeed!  These enchanting Frida Kahlo earrings are based on a full length self portrait, sometimes called “Between the Curtains,” painted in 1947 and 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 are 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.  The self portrait has been closely cropped to only show Frida’s beautifull face and a pink flower in her hair.  A black border acts like a frame to highlight the art . As you can see in the photos, 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
 
To perfectly complement the Frida Kahlo polymer clay dangles, premium Czech glass roller beads and sparkling Swarovski crystals were used.  The roller beads were created from a gorgeous magenta pink and clear glass mix with a silver metallic center.  They have a rustic finish to them to add an aged look, and, since they’re  translucent, the beads absolutely glow when worn.  And with the addition of facets, they also add subtle sparkle.   And talking about sparkle, a single faceted Swarovski crystal bicone in a rich, eye catching color called “ruby” red was stacked on top of each roller bead, 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 one of a kind PRECIOSA FRIDA earrings are a perfect jewelry gift for the woman who admires the vibrant Mexican artist.
