Heart and Paw Print Dog Rescue Earrings, Turquoise Lampwork Swarovski Artisan Jewelry
If you love dogs or know someone who does, the HEART OF A DOG handmade earrings are a perfect jewelry gift. The one of a kind earrings were created with artisan copper teardrops stamped with a paw print encircles with a heart, dark turquoise lampwork glass beads and Swarovski crystal dangles. The copper dog paw print and heart teardrops were individually handmade by Kristi of KristBowmanDesign out of copper precious metal clay. A heart and paw print were stamped into each teardrop, the heart being recessed with the paw print elevated for great texture. The teardrops were then fired at high heat in a kiln for strength and durability. Since each was individually handmade, you can see slight variations - something that makes each unique! The teardrops were carefully wire wrapped on copper wire to the upper part f the earrings.
Turquoise and copper were just made for each other so dark turquoise lampwork glass beads were chosen the earring design. The lampwork glass beads were also artisan handmade, by Charlotte of Covergirlbeads, out of opaque turquoise glass. A super shiny gunmetal finish was added for a bit of a rustic appeal. To add sparkle and movement to the earrings, a Swarovski crystal faceted bicone was wire wrapped to the bottom of the copper teardrops. The crystals, in a color called “indicolite,” are a perfect complement to the lampwork glass beads. Created for the woman who loves unique dog related jewelry, the HEART OF A DOG earrings were carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs.

Dogs are a symbol of loyalty, friendship and unconditional love. Even though it is 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
