Hummingbird Earrings, Faux Vintage Copper Colibri Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Perfect nature inspired jewelry for the woman who loves birds, especially the flying gems known as hummingbirds, the one of a kind COLIBRIES COLORIDOS handmade earrings will quickly become all-time favorites.  The fun earrings feature artisan created hummingbird charms that look as if they were pulled from a book of antique Audubon bird illustrations that are a bit faded.  Faceted multi-color Czech glass rondelles, light green melon beads and copper complement the colors of the hummingbird dangles perfectly.  The eye catching, square-shaped hummingbird charms look as if they are well-loved vintage jewelry pieces. But they are faux vintage, having been individually hand cut, filed and sanded from modern copper. A permanent metal transfer was applied and then the charms were sealed for years of wearing pleasure. The dangles feature a mirror image of a single, colorful hummingbird in greens, blues and browns nectaring at a pale orangey-pink trumpet flower.  The background is a mottled green in various shades with a darker green swirling ribbon design at the bottom.  Since the dangles were individually handmade, there are slight differences which add a wonderful antique vibe. The back of the dangles is smooth, shiny copper which will gradually gain a patina over time. Because the charms are made from copper, the earrings are very lightweight to wear. 
To perfectly highlight the colors of the hummingbirds, faceted Czech glass rondelles and glass melon beads were used. The Czech beads are super crisp faceted to add subtle sparkle.  They are a wonderful combination of translucent aqua blue, teal green, rich purple and ambe that transmit light beautifully when the earrings are worn (see photos #2 and #7).  To add even more glow, ridged Czech glass melon beads top the rondelles separated by a copper disc spacer.  The melon heads are a pale green with a light metallic coating.   Sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents finish the lovely earrings.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the one of a kind COLIBRIES COLORIDOS earrings will be much loved and often worn by the woman who adores unique artisan hummingbird jewelry and is, perhaps, a birder.  “Colibries coloridos” is Spanish for “colorful hummingbirds.”

Hummingbirds symbolize the enjoyment of life and the lightness of being; they are said to help lift up negativity and express love more fully.  Copper is believed to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.  Even though man made, glass is said to carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is believed to be a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.

The COLIBRIES COLORIDOS handmade lampwork 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!
