The Czech glass coins used as the focals of the PASSIONATELY PINK handmade earrings are absolutely stunning. Czech glass is made in small batches in the Czech Republic, where glass production has been carried on for hundreds of years. These particular beads are a coin shape created with a combination of clear and pink glass and a textured edge. The pink glass is in a flowing, wave-like design with many hues, from light pink to dark pink; the clear glass accentuating the pink perfectly. Then, as if the Czech beads needed more beauty, an earthy brown finish was applied to the beads, which was then polished off the flat faces of the beads but left in the crevasses of the textured edges. A copper disc spacer caps the top and bottom of each Czech bead.
A rich, fuchsia colored agate gemstone round was stacked at the top of the earrings design to bring out the pinks in the Czech glass coins. In the interest of full disclosure, the agate beads have been permanently dyed - agate does not naturally come in a fuchsia color. The fuchsia pink agate beads are faceted and provide subtle sparkle to the earrings. A 3 mm copper bead was placed on top of each.
To finish the PASSIONATELY PINK handmade earrings, all the components were strung on copper headpins. The top of each head pin was carefully wire wrapped into a loop and attached to sterling silver French hook earwires. Two copper beads were added to each earwire for a professional finish.

Even though man made, glass carries the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication. Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development. 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 PASSIONATELY PINK Czech glass and agate earrings will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
