Red Poppies Poppy Earrings, Faux Vintage Flowers Handmade Jewelry Gift

Item Description

Cheerful flower jewelry for year long wear, the eye-catching 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 two faceted red Czech glass beads and copper.  The unique charms look like they were cut from an old cookie or tea tin. 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, bright red poppies against a two-toned mellow yellow background.  A sealant was used to keep the images vibrant for many years to come.  Because the poppy 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, two faceted bright red Czech glass rondelles were stacked above the poppy dangles.  A coppery gold Picasso finish is found on the flat ends, adding gleam and an aged look to the design.  The rondelles are separated by a copper disc spacer.  Since the red glass rondelles are faceted, they add subtle sparkle to the earrings.  Sterling silver French hooks with copper bead accents finish the unique earrings.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the PRETTY POPPIES artisan earrings are a perfect gift idea for the woman who loves red poppy jewelry and loves to wear one of a kind, artisan designed flower earrings.

Flowers are a symbol of spiritual awakening; also they have been symbols of generosity and love when they are given away.  Even though man made, 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 one of a kind PRETTY POPPIES 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!
