Purple Heart Earrings, Orange Flower Enamel Lampwork Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Perfect handmade jewelry for the woman who doesn’t want a “normal” Valentine’s Day gift, the COEURS VIOLETS one of a kind earrings are definitely eye-catchers and sure to please!  These uniquely colorful beauties were created with individually artisan created enamel purple heart and orange flower charms. Artisan purple and orange lampwork glass beads, copper and sterling silver highlight the fun hearts.  Starting out as copper blanks, the heart charms were carefully layered with dark purple (that has more than a bit of blue in it) enamel glass powder and fused onto the copper with a high temperature butane torch. White glass frit was added for a speckled white flower effect.  Then, to add even more fun, bright orange lampwork glass flowers were added, giving wonderful texture and a jolt of hot color.  The back of the hearts are finished in professionally shiny black enamel.  Since the finish of the hearts is high gloss, some photos show reflections from the sky and clouds.  A heavy duty copper jump ring securely connects the hearts to the upper part of the earrings.***Please note:  Even though the enamel charms are very durable, they are glass fused to copper.  If a charm is dropped on a hard surface, the glass can chip or chip.
 
To perfectly complement the enamel heart dangles, purple and orange lampwork glass beads were used above the charms.  Also individually artisan handmade, the lampwork beads started out with a base of orange glass.  Purple glass was wrapped around them and white frit was added for a speckled effect, wonderfully highlighting the pale white flowers on the hearts.  Bits of the orange show through here and there, especially on the top and bottom of each bead.  Capping each lampwork bead is a pair of copper flower discs and a 4 mm copper bead.  Sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents finish the exquisite heart earrings.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the one of a kind COEURS VIOLETS earrings are a perfect Valentine’s Day / Mother’s Day / birthday jewelry gift for the woman who loves to flaunt vibrant designer jewelry.  "Coeurs violet" is French for "purple hearts."

Throughout the centuries, hearts have represented never ending love. Flowers represent spiritual awakening; they are symbols of generosity and love when they are given away.  Even though man made, glass carries the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication. Copper is used 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 COEURS VIOLETS heart 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!
