Purple Pink White Enamel Earrings, Swarovski Pearls Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Filled with a wondrous rustic beauty, the BONHEUR  earrings will quickly become a handmade jewelry favorite.  The one of a kind earrings feature two-sided artisan enamel dangles, purple Swarovski crystal pearls, Czech glass and Swarovski crystals.  The eye catching, individually made dangles started out as copper squares which were torch enameled at high heat with white. While the white glass enamel was still hot, a glass frit of mostly purples and pinks but also with specks of brown was added to create random spotted designs on all sides.  Because of the frit, the enameled dangles have an incredible raised texture which catches the light when the earrings are worn. The top bit of each square was torched black but left un-enameled for rustic beauty, a trademark of the artist who made them. Please note: because the enamel is high gloss, it was impossible to keep some glare off of the pieces when taking photos.  “Bonheur” is French for “happiness.”
 
To perfectly complement the enamel dangles, a glowing Swarovski crystal pearl in a rich medium purple was used.  As you can see in the photos, the sheen of the Swarovski pearls is exquisite. A small sterling silver daisy spacers separates the crystal pearls from a milky translucent violet opal Czech glass bead.  Sitting on top of each Czech bead is a sparkling faceted Swarovski crystal bicone in a rich brown color called “smoked topaz.” Sterling silver wire was used to carefully wire wrapped all the elements used for the earrings, and sterling French hooks complete the design. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the unique BONHEUR earrings are a unique gift for the woman who adores one of a kind artisan jewelry.

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 BONHEUR 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!
