Orange and White Mitra Shell Earrings, Pansy Flower Handmade Dangle Jewelry
The SWEET SUMMER DREAMS handmade earrings will be reached for time and time again as the lazy days of summer roll on, as you head to the beach or need that unique pair of earrings for fun and frolic with friends. The one of a kind earrings feature slices of orange spotted white mitra sea shells (sometimes called Episcopal mitres) bonded together with orange resin. The shells are two sided, each side spotted with a different pattern, but the most colorful sides are to the front.
To add a note of beautiful whimsy, rich burnt orange Czech glass pansy flower beads were placed on top of the mitra shells, separated by a copper daisy spacer. The pansy beads are translucent so positively glow when backlit and have a Picasso finish to give them a vintage look. Sterling silver earwires with copper bead accents finish the beauties. Designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the SWEET SUMMER DREAMS earrings are a perfect gift for the woman who loves sea shells and artisan crafted jewelry.

Shell is believed to stimulate intuition, sensitivity, imagination and adaptability. Even though man made, glass is 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 SWEET SUMMER DREAMS 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!
