The beautiful copper leaves and flower charms used in the FLOREALE earrings were individually created by precious metal clay artist, Kristi of Kristi Bowman Design.  Copper precious metal clay is an artist's clay that is saturated with tiny copper particles, an organic binder and water.  She molded, shaped and imprinted / carved each individual piece from metal clay and then put the pieces in a kiln. The leaves were fired at a high heat, during which the binder and water were burned off leaving pure copper.  The charms were given a patina and then polished to bring out the amazing detail of the raised leaves and flowers.  You can run your finger over the charms and feel the wonderful texture. The leaves are slightly curved and the backside is primarily smooth although you can slightly see the texture from the front side.
 
To add fun color to the earrings designs, three types of Czech glass were used.  The most prominent are the rustic “stone” Czech glass rounds.  The beads were made in the Czech Republic from turquoise glass.  The glass was etched so it has a matte finish.  Then a black Picasso finish was applied and partially wiped off, leaving splotches and dots here and there.  The faux stone beads are capped at the top and bottom with copper disc spacers.
 
Just above the rustic stone glass beads are faceted bright orange Czech glass rondelles, adding a pop of color and subtle sparkle to the earrings design.  A copper Picasso finish can be found on the top and bottom of the beads.  A copper disc spacers separates the orange Czech glass rondelles from the small turquoise beads, also Czech glass, which also have tiny dots here and there of a pale beige Picasso finish.  A 2 mm copper bead rests on top of the small turquoise bead.
 
All of the elements used to create the FLOREALE artisan earrings were wire wrapped on copper wire and attached to sterling silver French hooks.  A copper bicone was added to each earwire for a professional finish.
 

Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development. Even though man made, glass carries the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication. 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 FLOREALE handmade 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!
