Red Poppies Flower Earrings, Red Coral Vintage Look Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Beautiful for spring and summer wear (and they can be used as a unique Christmas jewelry!), the charming PAPAVERI ROSSI handmade earrings have a lovely vintage feel to them.  The one of a kind flower earrings feature artisan created red poppy charms that are reminiscent of faded Victorian botanical illustrations.  Rustic red coral discs are a perfect pairing to the red poppies.  The eye catching poppies dangles look as if they were upcycled from old cookie or tea tins - but they only mimic rustic vintage tins.  The dangles 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 fun.  A field of red poppies with green buds and stems are found on each charm.  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.
 
The red poppy copper dangles are perfectly complemented with hand cut red coral discs stacked above them.  Three discs were used, capped on the top and bottom with small copper daisy spacers.  Because the red coral was hand cut, they are very similar in size and finish but are not exactly the same.  A glowing copper bicone bead finishes the stack.  All of the elements were strung and wire wrapped on copper wire and then connected to sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the PAPAVERI ROSSI handmade earrings are a perfect jewelry gift for the woman who loves flowers, especially eye catching red poppies.  “Papaveri Rossi” is Italian for “red poppies.”

Through the centuries, flowers have been a symbol of spiritual awakening; they are 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.  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 PAPAVERI ROSSI 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!
