Red Cardinal Christmas Earrings, Lightweight Holiday Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

A thoughtful gift for the woman who loves birds, especially the elegant northern cardinal, the lightweight CHRISTMAS CARDINALS earrings will be well loved and worn often!  One of a kind holiday jewelry, the eye-catching earrings feature cheerful artisan red cardinal dangles, two colors and sizes of Swarovski crystals and sterling silver.  The round cardinal charms were individually artisan made from polymer clay.  A design of an elegant male cardinal perched on a holly limb with spiky green leaves and red berries was permanently transferred onto a layer of snow white polymer clay.  The beauties have a wonderful high gloss, glazed ceramic look with beveled edges and a medium barn red back side.  A final coat of jewelry grade varnish protects the cardinal charms, providing many years of wearing enjoyment.  Because the dangles were created from polymer clay, the earrings are very lightweight to wear.   ***Please note:  since the finish of the cardinal charms are high gloss, they are very reflective - despite what shows in many of the photographs, the background is pure white. 
To add even more Christmas holiday cheer and fabulous sparkle, faceted red and green Swarovski crystal bicones were used.  The larger green crystal, a color called ‘fern,” is flanked on both sides by smaller “light Siam” red crystals, separated by small sterling silver beads.  Sterling silver French hook earwires finish the cardinal earrings.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the CHRISTMAS CARDINALS are a fun pair of unique bird earrings to wear all holiday season long - perfect for the woman who adores one of a kind, artisan bird jewelry!

The red cardinal, according to many traditions, is a sign of good fortune in the future; they are also seen as a bridge between this world and the spiritual world. Even though man made, crystals (glass) 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.

The one of a kind CHRISTMAS CARDINALS artisan holiday 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!
