Handmade Swarovski Crystal Chandelier Earrings, Sunset Colors Copper Dangle Jewelry
Reminiscent of the glorious colors of a Desert Southwest sunset, the handmade SEDONA SUNSET chandelier earrings provide plenty of amazing sparkle when worn. Hanging from a glowing copper frame with swirls are three sets of six Swarovski crystals that bring the fiery sunset to your ears. The colors range from sunny yellow through rich oranges, reds and browns and ends with a turquoise crystal. Sterling silver earwires professionally finish the unique beaded earrings. If you want a dramatic, one of a kind pair of super sparkly earrings, the SEDONA SUNSET earrings are perfect for you. Jewelry for the discerning and fun loving woman, the earrings were carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs.

The beautiful Desert Southwest is my home and I am always captivated by the blazing evening sunsets that play out most nights. That was the inspiration behind these SEDONA SUNSET chandelier earrings. Three long dangles hang from each copper frame, each with six 2 mm faceted Swarovski crystal bicones. The sunset colors are, from bottom to top: turquoise, crystal red magma, fire opal, crystal copper, sun and light topaz. Please take a look at any of the photos to check out the beauty of the crystals - I only wish the actual sparkle shows up in the photos! Each grouping of Swarovski crystals were framed with 2 mm copper beads at the top and bottom and stacked onto handmade (by me) copper headpins with a hand hammered loop at the end. The headpins were carefully wire wrapped onto the chandelier frame loops. Just imagine these earrings swinging and swaying on your ears, picking up the light and sparkling away!
The pure copper chandelier frames themselves are truly gorgeous. They are an elongated teardrop design with an extra flourish of swirl in the inside at the bottom. I made sure that the swirls faced each other when designing the earrings. Copper dots frame each side of the bottom loops and the loop at the top for added texture and beauty. I want to point out that since the copper used in the chandelier frames is very shiny, that they reflected the blue jeans I was wearing when taking the photos causing what looks like tarnished areas. Believe me, the chandelier frames are bright and shiny!
To finish the SEDONA SUNSET earrings, I used sterling silver French hooks. To marry the two metals together, I added a 3 mm copper bead to each earwire for a professional finish.
For a better understanding of the relative size of the SEDONA SUNSET earrings, please be sure to check out photo #5 for a size comparison with a quarter.
Glass and crystal, even though manmade, carry 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 SEDONA SUNSET earrings will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
