Running Horses Earrings Suns Lampwork Yellow Crystals Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

If you or someone you know loves the beauty and strength of horses, the WILD HORSES handmade earrings are a perfect gift for her!  Jewelry for a horse lover, the one of a kind earrings feature round, artisan two-sided running horses / sun charms, artisan turquoise blue lampwork glass beads and yellow Swarovski crystals.  The beautiful horses and sun symbol charms were artisan designed and hand cast from high quality, lead free pewter right here in the United States. Southwest petroglyph-inspired running horses are inscribed on one side and a sun symbol design is on the other.  As can be seen in the photos, the detailing of the running horses are superb and the design is incredibly dynamic. Because of the spots on the horses, they seem to be patterned after appaloosas, a horse highly prized by native Americans.  The backside of the pewter charms have a sun design, a circle with multiple rays.  On both the front and back, the charms have a lovely hammered look and glow like old, heirloom sterling silver (much more silvery looking than the photos show).  The inscribed designs were oxidized bringing out the wonderful detail against the silver sheen.  As can be seen in the photos, the horses and sun charms are similar but not exactly the same, adding even more rustic goodness.  .  
To perfectly complement the unique horses and suns charms, greenish blue turquoise lampwork glass beads and yellow Swarovski crystals were used.  The lampwork glass beads, representing the large Southwest sky, are a rich green blue color with faint swirls of green and lavender.  Stacked on top of each lampwork bead are two sterling silver daisy spacers, the bottom one larger than the one above.  A sparkling yellow Swarovski crystal bicone, representing the Southwest sun, sits on top of each daisy spacer.  The crystals are a bright yellow color called “sunflower.”  To add even more glitter to the earring design, a sunflower Swarovski crystal was added to each sterling silver earwire.   Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the beautiful WILD HORSES earrings will be a treasured jewelry gift for the woman who adores horses and loves to wear unique Southwest petroglyph-inspired jewelry.

Horses have long been a symbol of power to most cultures and are believed to symbolize strength and vitality and the ability to overcome obstacles in life to pursue goals no matter what may stand in the way.  Ever since early man, the sun has symbolized the supreme cosmic power – the life-force that enables all things to thrive and grow.  Pewter is believed to be very grounding, bringing the wearer back to reality. Although man made, glass and crystals carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication. 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 WILD HORSES artisan 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!
