Hearts Flowers Earrings, Pink Purple Mothers Day Handmade Jewelry Gift

Item Description

The handmade DOLCE hearts and flowers earrings are a perfect jewelry gift for Valentines, Mother’s Day, a birthday, an anniversary or anytime unique heart jewelry is needed.  One of a kind earrings that can be worn all year long, the beauties were created from Czech glass hearts beads, purple amethyst rounds, copper and sterling silver.  The pressed glass hearts, made in small batches in the Czech Republic, have a base of translucent blush pink opal glass that absolutely glows when the earrings are worn.  A flower was impressed into the glass while the hearts were still molten.  To bring out the details and to add a vintage look, an earthy brown Picasso finish was applied, settling into the recessed flowers and along the edges of the hearts. Since the flowers were made in small batches, the hearts are very similar but are also a bit different.  The back of the hearts do not have a flower design and are, instead, smooth pale pink opal glass.  
Subce purple and pink are a much loved color combination, a rich amethyst gemstone round is found above each heart.  The purple amethyst is translucent so also captures the light and glows (please see photos #2 and #7).  A copper bicone bead tops each gemstone.  The beautiful earrings are finished with sterling silver French hook earwires with a copper bicone bead accent. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the unique DOLCE earrings will be a welcome gift for a loved one, jewelry that will be worn often.  “Dolce” is Italian for “sweet.”

Throughout the centuries, hearts represent never ending love.  Flowers represent spiritual awakening; they are symbols of generosity and love when they are given away.  Even though man made, glass carries the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Amethyst is known as the “stone of peace” because it’s said to help calm fears & reduce stress, promoting contentment; in Medieval times, amethyst was said to protect the wearer against drunkenness.  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 glowing DOLCE 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!
