Michelangelo Creation of Adam Art Earrings, Handmade Artisan Jewelry

Item Description

With a simple but powerful scene of two fingers almost touching, THE CREATION OF ADAM art earrings are based on the world famous fresco painting of the same name by Renaissance sculptor, painter, architect and poet Michelangelo.  The one of a kind earrings feature artisan created polymer clay rectangles, black Czech glass roller beads with a Picasso finish and sparkling Swarovski crystals. The art dangles were individually created from high quality black polymer clay formed in a rectangular shape that was applied with a permanent art transfer. For durability and shine, the dangles were given several coats of varnish (which made the earrings hard to photo because of the high shine of the varnish).  The scene is of two outstretched hands, fingers about to touch, against a pale blue and off white sky. The earrings show just a small portion of the much larger iconic fresco on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City, painted by MicheLangelo in 1511. The fresco illustrates the Bible’s creation story from the Book of Genesis where God is just at the point of giving the spark of life to Adam, the first man, by touching his outstretched finger. The Creation of Adam is the fourth scene in the Genesis frescoes painted by Michelangelo on the ceiling between 1508-1512.   For more information about The Creation of Adam, here’s a link:   The Creation of Adam by Michelangelo
To perfectly highlight the simple color combination of Michelangelo’s painting, premium quality faceted Czech glass roller beads and glittering Swarovski crystals were used.  Two faceted Czech roller beads were stacked on top of the dangles. They were created with opaque black glass with a rustic, mossy looking Picasso finish of pale lichen green, pale aqua and beige.  Representing stars in the sky, nestled into the top black roller bead is a mega-sparkle Swarovski crystal bicone with a color shifting aurora borealis rainbow finish. Since the roller bead and Swarovski crystals are faceted, they provide plenty of eye catching sparkle at each movement.  The lightweight to wear earrings are finished with sterling silver French hooks with a small Swarovski crystal added for even more glitter. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, THE CREATION OF ADAM earrings are a perfect gift for the woman who adores the work of famous painters and loves to wear unique artisan jewelry.
