Lavender Heart Earrings, Enamel Lampwork Valentines Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

A perfect jewelry gift for the woman who loves heart earrings that aren’t your typical pink and red designs, the CUORI DI LAVANDA earrings definitely have a boho flair to them!  Wonderful for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and all year long, the one of a kind beauties are created with artisan enameled lavender heart charms, artisan purple lampwork glass beads and two types of sparkling crystals.  The unique heart dangles, which were individually handmade, started out as copper blanks.  A layer of lavender glass powder was fused onto the front using a high temperature butane torch and then mystical-looking, off-white circles were hand painted.  The back is finished in black enamel.  A trip to the kiln at about 1475 degrees F fused everything together for a high gloss finish.  As you can see in the photos, especially #2 and #7, the heart charms hang at an angle and, because they were hand created, are very similar but are also somewhat different.  ***Please note:  Even though the enamel charms are very durable, they are glass fused to copper.  If a charm is dropped on a hard surface, the glass can crack or chip. 
Complementing the lavender hearts beautifully are purple amethyst lampwork glass beads, Czech crystal rondelles and Swarovski crystals.  The shiny lampwork glass beads are artisan made from transparent light amethyst purple glass.  They positively glow when the earrings are worn.  Stacked above each lampwork bead is a Czech crystal rondelle set with six mega-sparkle clear crystals.  Nestled into the rondelle is a faceted Swarovski crystal bicone  in an amazing color called “crystal paradise shine.”  The crystals have a multicolored metallic coating that creates vibrant flashes of purple, green, blue and pink, color shifting according to the angle of the light.  Each sterling silver French hook earwires also has a crystal paradise shine crystal added for extra glitter.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the CUORI DI LAVANDA heart earrings were created for the woman who loves one of a kind artisan jewelry with definite boho vibes.  “Cuori di lavanda” is Italian for “lavender hearts.”

Throughout the centuries, hearts have represented never ending love.  Even though man made, glass and crystals are said to carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Copper is believed 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 CUORI DI LAVANDA 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!
