Golden Opal Lampwork Earrings, Real Turquoise Copper Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Reminiscent of exquisite yellow Ethiopian opals, the one of a kind GOLDEN OPAL handmade earrings are beauties to wear every day, perfect for dress up or dress down!  They feature glowing artisan lampwork glass nuggets, real Sleeping Beauty turquoise, copper and sterling silver.  The lampwork glass beads were individually made with a core of honey colored glass.  Then rich peachy gold and sunny yellow foil was added to create a breathtaking glow.  Everything was encased with swirls of transparent glass and a pale yellow opal glass to allow the light to hit the foil.  The lampwork beads look like they have their own power source!  As the angle of the light changes, so does the shimmer of the foil.  To add even more eye appeal, the lampwork beads are a rounded nugget shape.  Since the beads were individually artisan made, they are similar but not exactly the same, especially as one bead shows more yellow foil than the other.  Two daisy-shaped copper spacers cap the top and bottom of each lampwork bead.
To add a pop of gorgeous blue color to the earrings design, a real Sleeping Beauty turquoise rondelle sits above each lampwork bead.  Sleeping Beauty turquoise, an American turquoise, is a much sought after gemstone due to its sky blue color with little to no matrix.  Sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents finish the beautiful earrings,  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the unique GOLDEN OPAL lampwork earrings were created for the woman who appreciates one of a kind, artisan made jewelry, earrings that no one else has!

Even though man made, glass carries the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Turquoise is a stone of wholeness, promoting a sense of unity with all that surrounds us; it is believed to bring peace of mind, a soothing energy and healing of the spirit.  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 one of a kind GOLDEN OPAL lampwork glass 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!
