Heart Earrings, Starburst Amber Copper Crystals Handmade Jewelry Gift

Item Description

Absolutely exquisite for the woman who loves to wear heart jewelry, the STARBURST HEARTS handmade earrings will be reached for time and time again.  The one of a kind earrings feature rustic Czech glass hearts, Swarovski crystals, copper and sterling silver.  The heart beads were created in small batches in the Czech Republic from translucent dark amber brown glass with a starburst design imprinted on both sides.  To give the hearts a rustic look, an earthy Picasso finish of pale pale lichen green, pale teal and a hint of cognac brown was applied and partly polished off, leaving each side of the hearts a bit different.  A copper metallic wash was added to bring out the detailing of the multi-rayed starburst design.  Since the glass is translucent, as you can see in photos # 2 and # 5, the hearts have a beautifully warm glow to them when worn.  The earrings need to be worn to be truly appreciated. Since the earrings are two sided, they are lovely from any angle.
 
To perfectly complement the glass hearts and to add mega-sparkle, faceted Swarovski crystal bicones in a rich color called “Indian red” were used.  Even though the name of these crystals is Indian red, they are more of a dark burnt orange color.  A crystal sits on top of each heart separated by a small copper bead.  A copper bead caps the top of each crystal.  All of the elements used to create the heart earrings were wire wrapped on a copper headpin and then connected to sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the one of a kind STARBURST HEARTS earrings were created for the woman who adores wearing artisan heart jewelry.

Through the centuries, hearts represent never ending love.  Although man made, glass and crystals are said to 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 STARBURST HEARTS artisan heart 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!
