Metallic Violet Copper Teardrop Earrings, Czech Glass Purple Handmade Fashion Jewelry
The exquisite VISIONS OF VIOLET handmade earrings are certainly filled with . . . well . . . the color of violet! The one of a kind earrings feature metallic luster finish Czech glass teardrops, glowing violet opal Czech glass discs and sparkling amethyst satin Swarovski crystals. The Czech glass teardrops (which were extremely hard to photograph) were created with a clear glass base. Then an amazing copper metallic and violet purple Picasso finish was applied to give an aged look to the teardrops. Depending on the angle of the light, hints of mossy green and pale blue can also be found. The front side of the teardrops are rounded and the back side has a sliced flat surface. The stunning glass teardrops were carefully wire wrapped with copper wire to attach to the upper part of the artisan earrings. Just imagine the ever changing beauty of these earrings as you wear them!
To bring out the purple of the Picasso finish, stacked above the teardrops are three milky violet opal discs. Each one radiates plummy goodness that also changes depending on the angle of the light. Be sure to check out the photos that show the earrings hanging and back lit with the sun. The three violet discs are capped at the top and bottom with copper daisy spacers. A rich purple, faceted Swarovski crystal bicone was added at the top to provide super sparkle. The color is called “amethyst satin” and highlights the different shades of purple perfectly. A pair of sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead enhancements finish the earrings perfectly. One of a kind jewelry for the woman who loves unique earrings that are not mass produced, the VISIONS OF VIOLET artisan earrings were carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs.

Although man made, glass and crystals are said to carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication. 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 VISIONS OF VIOLET artisan 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!
