Man in the Moon Earrings, Aqua Czech Glass Swarovski Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Perfect jewelry for the woman who is fascinated by the night sky and especially loves the moon, the fun MAN IN THE MOON handmade earrings are sure to put a smile on her face each and every time they are worn.  The one of a kind earrings feature aqua Czech glass man in the moon face beads, light blue Czech glass melon beads and sparkling Swarovski crystals.  The lovely, coin-shaped beads were made in small batches in the Czech Republic from translucent aqua blue glass with a man in the moon face pressed into both sides.  Just look at the details of the faces!  The glass has a matte, somewhat pitted surface for a rustic look.  A mystical looking aurora borealis metallic finish was added to one side, casting a silvery aqua to lilac glow depending on the angle of the light (which the photos definitely failed to capture - these beads are so much prettier in real life).  The recessed areas gleam with a silver aqua color in normal light and then change to a a lilac when the translucent beads are back lit (please see photos #2 and #7).  The back side of the beads has a face design but no aurora borealis finish.  The earrings were wire-wrapped tightly so the metallic finish side always faces front.  Because of their handmade nature, the man in the moon beds are very similar but are also a bit different.
Wonderfully complementing the man in the moon beads are Czech glass melon beads and Swarovski crystals.  The ridged melon beads, separated from the face beads by two tiny sterling silver disc beads, are a translucent pale blue color.  They have a gold Picasso finish which settled in the recessed areas to bring out the details.  Since all moons need stars, above each melon bead is a mega-glitter, clear Swarovski crystal faceted bicone that sparkles at the slightest movement when the earrings are worn.  Sterling silver French hook earwires finish the unique earrings. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog designs, the MAN IN THE MOON earrings are a joyful pair of earrings to add to any woman’s jewelry collection!

Ever since man first looked at the moon, lunar landscapes have been interpreted into familiar shapes and created stories to explain them, a “man in the moon” being the most common in the Northern Hemisphere.  Even though man made, glass and crystals carry 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 MAN IN THE MOON dangle 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!
