Pink and Green Whirlygig Lampwork Earrings, Boho Artisan Handmade Jewelry Gift for Women

Item Description

 

“What fun!” can be used to describe the WHIRLING handmade earrings as they encapsulate the uniqueness of a boho jewelry design.  The one of a kind earrings feature artisan made lampwork glass whirlygig beads in raspberry pink and green, pink Czech glass nuggets and sterling silver.  The lampwork glass beads are hard to explain.  Their shape is a domed disc, thicker in the middle than on the edges.  The very center of the beads are a lovely medium green color, called crocodile green.  Swirling around the center are two layers of striped, raspberry pink glass with bits of lavender showing through.  The stripes have been encased in clear glass for a 3-D effect.  All along the edge of each disc, individual dots of the crocodile green glass, providing fabulous texture to the beads.  Overall, the lampwork beads have a whirling, kinetic energy to them and somewhat resemble a whirlygig.

 

To play up the whirlygig theme, the pink and green lampwork beads were wire wrapped with sterling silver wire, three strands running through the center of each glass bead.  The beads were wrapped tightly so they don’t actually turn when worn.  Three faceted raspberry pink Czech glass nuggets were stacked above the whirlygig beads.  Since the Czech beads are faceted, they add subtle sparkle to the design.  Sterling silver daisy spacers cap the top and bottom of each stack of pink beads.  All of the elements used to make the earrings were strung on sterling wire, wire wrapped and attached to sterling silver French hook earwires.  A single pink Czech glass nugget was added to each earwire for even more fun.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the WHIRLING artisan earrings will make a perfect gift for the woman who loves one of a kind boho jewelry.

Even though man made, glass and crystals carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.
