Pink and Brown Handmade Earrings, Czech Glass Smoky Quartz Crystal Dangle Jewelry
Pink and brown is such a rich combination, complementing each other perfectly. As do the Czech glass, gemstones and Swarovski crystals used in the unique CIAO, BELLA! handmade dangle earrings. Fluted pink Czech glass with a metallic Picasso finish and smoky quartz were paired with Swarovski crystals and sterling silver for a pair of sweet beaded beauties. The artisan earrings might be on the small side, but they definitely pack a powerful stylish punch. Lovely jewelry to wear for dress up or dress down, the CIAO, BELLA! earrings were carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs. "Ciao, bella" is an Italian phrase that roughly translates to "Hello, beautiful" - it also is used to say "goodbye".
- Czech glass fluted bicones: app. 8mm x 9mm; Picasso and metallic luster finish
- Smoky quartz: 4 mm
- Swarovski crystals: faceted 4mm "rose" bicones
- Metal: sterling silver
- Earwires: French hooks; sterling silver
- Length: app. 1.5" / 3.8 cm from the top curve of the earwires
To finish the CIAO, BELLA! earrings, everything was strung on handmade (by me) sterling silver headpins with a hand hammered loop at the lower end. The top of the headpins were carefully wire wrapped into a loop and then connected to sterling silver French hook earwires for a perfect finish.
For a better understanding of the relative size of the pink and brown CIAO, BELLA! earrings, please be sure to check photo #5 for a size comparison with a dime.
Although man made, glass and crystal are said to carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication. Silver is believed to be a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.
The CIAO, BELLA! earrings will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
