Frosted Aqua Lampwork Earrings, Swarovski Crystals Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Named after the world’s most beautiful lagoon, the AITUTAKI handmade earrings are filled with the peaceful tropical colors of the waters of Aitutaki, an isle of paradise in the Cook Islands of the South Pacific.  Created with artisan made frosted aqua lampwork glass beads, the one of a kind earrings also include Swarovski crystal rondelles with a color shifting finish and light blue Swarovski crystal bicones in two sizes. The rich-looking lampwork beads were individually handmade from translucent dark aqua glass.  To give the frosted look, the beads were immersed in an acid bath to etch the glass for a silky, matte sea glass look. As you can see from photographs # 2 and # 7, the beads positively glow when worn!  A pewter bead cap with a leaf design caps the top and bottom of the lampwork beads.  
To add magnificent sparkle to the earrings and add more tropical flair to the earrings, two types of Swarovski crystals were used.  Sitting on top of each aqua lampwork bead is a silver rondelle set with seven clear Swarovski crystals.  Each crystal has an aurora borealis finish for a prismatic rainbow effect.  Depending on the angle of the light, you will see many colors:  pinks, blue, greens, oranges, purples and others.  Snugged into the top of each rondelle is a faceted Swarovski crystal bicone in a color called “light turquoise,” a beautiful light blue green color.  These crystals also have a light aurora borealis finish one one-half the bicone, adding even more eye catching loveliness.  And since you can’t have enough sparkle, a smaller light turquoise crystal was added to the sterling silver French hook earwires.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the unique AITUTAKI lampwork earrings were created for the woman who adores tropical colors and one of a kind, artisan handmade jewelry!

Even though man made, glass and crystals are said to carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Pewter is believed to be very grounding, bringing the wearer back to reality.  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 AITUTAKI handmade 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!
