Frida Kahlo Art Earrings, Monkey Cat Boho Crystals Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Frida Kahlo was a vibrant Mexican artist and is beloved the world over.  If you are a fan of her life and work, you will absolutely love the appropriately named FRIDA dangle earrings!  The boho earrings feature faux vintage copper Frida dangles and two sizes of sparkling, richly-colored Swarovski crystals. The unique, artisan made Kahlo trapezoid shaped charms look as if they were cut from old cookie or tea tins. But they only mimic rustic vintage tins since they were individually artisan hand cut, filed and sanded from modern copper. A permanent metal transfer was applied and then sealed.  The picture of Frida is an iconic self portrait painted in 1940 - the earrings are a mirror image of the original. A black cat sits on her left shoulder, her pet monkey sits on her right, two white butterflies are in her hair and she is wearing a symbolic thorn necklace. Since the dangles were individually handmade, there are slight differences which add wonderful rustic vibes. The back of the dangles is smooth, shiny copper which will gradually gain a patina over time.  Since the charms are made from copper, the earrings are very lightweight to wear.
Because the Frida Kahlo charms are gorgeous in their own right, simple complements were all that was needed to complete the earrings.  Sparkling Swarovski crystals were chosen in a color called “graphite,” a bluish gray-black tone full of deep, shadowy sparkle. Two sizes of the crystals were used stacked above the Frida dangles,  6 mm and a 4 mm faceted bicones. Sterling silver earwires with copper bead accents finish the design beautifully. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the FRIDA earrings are a perfect gift for the woman who adores the magical realist art and intriguing life of the famous artist.

Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development. Although man made, crystals (glass) 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 FRIDA 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!
