Red Poppies Christmas Earrings, Crystals Faux Vintage Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Filled with bright red floral charm, the RED POPPIES earrings are perfect to wear not only during the Christmas holidays, but also can be worn all year long.  The one of a kind earrings feature artisan created rich red poppy charms with a vintage botanical look and sparkling red Swarovski crystals in two sizes and shapes.  The eye catching poppy charms look as if they were upcycled from old cookie or tea tins. But they only mimic rustic vintage tins since they were individually hand cut, filed and sanded from modern copper. A permanent metal transfer was applied for the faux tin look and then the charms were sealed for years of wearing pleasure.  The stars of the earrings are the individual red poppies with contrasting black centers that are found on each charm. A stem rises up from the left corner along with a poppy bud. On the right side, a Victorian architectural detail is found. Since the dangles were individually handmade, there are slight differences which add wonderful rustic vibes. The back of the dangles is smooth, shiny copper which will gradually gain a patina over time.  Because the charms are made from copper, the earrings are very lightweight to wear.
 
All Christmas jewelry (or year round jewelry for that matter!) needs more than a bit of incredible sparkle.  To add that to the poppy earrings, two sizes and shapes of Swarovski crystals were stacked above the charms, separated by rustic copper daisy spacers.  The color of the crystals is called “Siam,” a rich shade of translucent dark red. The largest crystal is a faceted 6 mm round while the smaller is a faceted 4 mm bicone.  Copper wire was used to attach everything to sterling silver French hook earwires with added copper bead accents. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the RED POPPIES earrings are perfect for the woman who loves unique Christmas jewelry . . . or just adores poppies!

Through the centuries, flowers have been a symbol of spiritual awakening; they are symbols of generosity and love when they are given away.  Even though man made, crystals (glass) carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication. Copper allows 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 RED POPPIES 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!
