Frida Kahlo Earrings, Monkey Red Ribbon Lightweight Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

If you are a fan of the iconic, world renowned Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, you will absolutely love the appropriately named FRIDA KAHLO dangle earrings!  The boho earrings feature a Frida print on artist’s board dangles, rich colored Czech glass discs and sparkling Swarovski crystals. The unique Kahlo rectangle dangles were individually artisan handmade out of artist’s board, a heavy duty, archival quality paper board.  A permanent transfer was applied and then sealed. The picture of Frida is a famous painting called “Self Portrait with Monkey, 1940.” One of her pet monkeys sits on her shoulder and a red ribbon twines through her braided hair and around her neck. The background is filled with lush greenery.  Since the dangles were individually handmade, there are very slight differences. The back of the dangles is smooth and has also been sealed. Since the charms are made from artist’s board, the earrings are very lightweight to wear.
 
Please note:  The artist who made these charms says “although these findings have been sealed on all sides and edges, they are not suitable for wearing in the shower or any water sport activities.”
 
Because the Frida Kahlo charms are gorgeous in their own right, simple complements were all that were needed to complete the earrings.  Two Czech glass discs in a rich orangey-red color are stacked above the charms and help to highlight the red ribbon in the painting. A single faceted Swarovski crystal in a color called “padparadscha,” named after the unique coloration of an extremely rare sapphire, sits on top of the Czech discs separated by a single small sterling silver bead.  A single padparadscha crystal dangles below the Frida charms, adding eye-catching sparkle at each movement of the head. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the lightweight-to-wear FRIDA KAHLO earrings are a perfect gift for the woman who adores the magical realist art and intriguing life of the famous artist.

Even though man made, glass and crystals carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is believed to be a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.
