Hare Rabbit Earrings, Spirals Moonstone Crystals Handmade Jewelry Gift

Item Description

Guaranteed to make you smile each and every time you wear them, the one of a kind JUMP FOR JOY hare / rabbit earrings are special pieces of whimsical jewelry that welcome spring, are perfect to celebrate Easter and can be worn all year long.  Created with artisan enamel hare dangles, the fun earrings also feature flashing moonstone gemstones and glittering Swarovski crystals.  The eye catching rabbit dangles were individually artisan made from hand cut and filed copper ovals.  A shiny white enamel background was created with torch fired glass powder fused onto the copper.  The coating of white glass was purposely not thickly applied which allowed the copper to barely peek through, creating a rustic pinkish look.  A permanent decal with a leaping hare or rabbit design was applied while the glass was still molten.  The whimsical long eared hares are grey with light brown highlights.  Their long legs show that they are leaping along as they’re going about their business, perhaps celebrating the warmer weather.  Hand painted spirals and dots also grace the lovely design.  The back of each  dangle is also enameled with speckled dark blue glass for strength and durability.  Since the rabbit charms are individually artisan handmade, they are very similar in design but not exactly the same.  
 
Since the leaping hares remind me of the Moon Rabbit, a Far Eastern mythical figure that lives on the moon often as a companion to the moon goddess, Chang’e, gorgeous moonstone gemstones and sparkling Swarovski crystals were stacked above the charms.  Used in jewelry for many millennia (the Romans believed moonstone was solidified rays of the moon), moonstone is famous for its mesmerizing opalescent play of light, often flashing pearly blue when the light hits it just right.  Unfortunately, the photos don’t do justice to the breathtaking flashes, but they definitely are there, much brigter than is shown.  Two hand cut moonstone heishe are used, separated by copper disc spacers.  To represent the stars, a single faceted Swarovski crystal bicone was placed above the moonstone.  The clear crystals have an iridescent coating called “aurora borealis” (AB) which, when the light hits them right, produces an explosion of dazzling rainbow colors in blues, pinks,  and yellows.  Sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents finish the unique earrings.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the JUMP FOR JOY earrings are a perfect gift for the woman who loves whimsical rabbit earrings celebrating the joy of spring.

Hares are symbolic of rebirth, vitality, creativity, fertility and a new-found excitement over life.  Moonstone is believed to be a protective stone for women and helps increase artistic creativity; it is said to help create joy & peace in the home.  Even though man made, crystals (glass) 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 JUMP FOR JOY one of a kind hare / rabbit 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!
