Red Poppies Earrings, Flowers Copper Coral Handmade Valentine Jewelry

Item Description

Perfect springtime flower jewelry that is also perfect for year long wear, the cheerful PRETTY POPPIES handmade earrings will put a smile on your face every time you wear them!  The one of a kind earrings were created from artisan red poppy flower charms complemented by red coral and Swarovski crystals. The unique charms look like they were cut from old cookie or tea tins. But they only mimic vintage tins since they were hand cut, filed and sanded from modern copper. A permanent metal transfer was then applied:  a field of perky red poppies with seed pods, green leaves and stems against an ivory background. Because the charms were individually handmade, they are very similar, but, if you look closely, you can see a bit of a difference. The back of the charms are glowing copper which will gradually gain a patina over time. Since the charms are made from copper, the earrings are extremely lightweight to wear.
 
To add simple finishing touches, red coral and Swarovski crystals were used.  The red coral, a great complement to the red poppies, are small drum shaped. Each has a small dot of black pitting that is a natural part of coral.  To add sparkle, a faceted Swarovski crystal bicone was stacked above each piece of coral, separated by a copper disc spacer. The color of the crystals is called “white opal,” a translucent creamy color with plenty of glitter.  Sterling silver French hooks with copper bead accents finish the earrings perfectly. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the PRETTY POPPIES artisan earrings are a perfect gift idea for a loved one for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, a birthday or “just because.”

Flowers are a symbol of spiritual awakening; also they have been symbols of generosity and love when they are given away.  Red Coral is used to help calm life, to restore harmony in the event of an emotional conflict. Even though man made, crystal (glass) carries 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 PRETTY 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!
