Millefiori Flowers Disc Earrings, Enamel Pink Blue Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Sweet millefiori flower jewelry for spring and summer wear, the one of a kind BELLISSIMI FIORI handmade earrings are a perfect Easter or Mother’s Day gift for the woman who loves flowers.  The dangle earrings feature artisan millefiori enamel discs, artisan pink lampwork glass beads, blue Swarovski crystals and pink Czech glass beads.  The beautiful discs were artisan hand cut and filed from copper and hammered to create a concave dome shape.  The domes were given a pink enamel glass background, shading from a light pink to a darker pink.  To create the floral pattern, tiny multi-colored millefiori glass beads in mainly shades of blue, aqua and lavender were randomly added and melted with a high heat torch.  Millefiori, a glass technique originally developed in Italy, is Italian for “thousands of flowers.” As you can see in the photos, each disc has a different millefiori flower design, beautiful against the pink background.  The back of the discs are also enameled with pink and lavender.
To perfectly complement the enamel flower discs, three different types of beads were used.  Just above each disc is a rich pink lampwork glass beads.  The shape is a somewhat smashed flying saucer shape that has ridges on the top and bottom.  Since the lampwork beads are translucent, they absolutely glow when the earrings are worn.  Just above each lampie, separated by a small sterling silver daisy spacer, is a faceted Swarovski crystal bicone in a regal dark blue color called “indigo.”  These crystals might be small but do they ever sparkle!  Separated from each crystal by a small sterling disc spacer is silky, matte finish pale pink Czech glass bead that also glows in the light.  Sterling silver French hook earwires with a single pink Czech bead adornment finishes the unique earrings.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the BELLISSIMI FIORI earrings are perfect for the woman who loves to flower garden, owns a flower shop or just just loves the soothing beauty of flowers.  “Bellissimi fiori” is Italian for “beautiful flowers.”

Through the centuries, flowers have been a symbol of spiritual awakening; also they have been symbols of generosity and love when given away.  Even though man made, glass and crystals 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 BELLISSIMI FIORI 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!
