Ruby Red Turquoise Earrings, Czech Glass Gemstones Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

If you love wearing jewelry that looks like glowing red embers, you’ll love these eye catching handmade earrings, perfectly named RUBY RED.  Unique ruby red Czech glass Saturn shaped / UFO beads are the highlight of the one of a kind earrings, which are also complemented with genuine turquoise gemstone rounds and Mykonos bead caps.  The rich ruby red Saturn beads are crisp faceted around the middle for unexpected glitter and long faceted on the ends for more subtle sparkle.  To add a weathered, vintage feel, the Saturn beads are marbled on the top and bottom with a Picasso finish of turquoise blue and silvery gray.  As you can see in the photos, the ruby red glass is translucent, so the earrings absolutley glow when worn!        
 
Genuine turquoise gemstone rounds and turquoise patinated Mykonos bead caps bring out the Picasso finish of the Saturn beads and add great beauty to the overall design.  The real turquoise rounds are a lovely blue color that the stone is famous for.  The finish on the turquoise is between a high polish and matte.  The unique bead caps were made by artisans on the Greek island of Mykonos from lead free pewter plated with copper and then given a lovely turquoise patina for an aged look.  The bead caps were individually made so they are very similar but not exactly the same.  Sterling silver French hook earwires finish the glowing earrings.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the RUBY RED earrings are a perfect gift for the woman who loves red and loves wearing artisan designer jewelry.

Although man made, glass carries the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.   Turquoise, a gemstone sacred to the Navajo, Zuni and other Native Americans, is a stone of wholeness, promoting a sense of unity with all that surrounds us; it is believed to bring peace of mind, a soothing energy and healing of the spirit.  Pewter is believed to be very grounding, bringing the wearer back to reality.  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 unique RUBY RED 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!
