Rustic Aqua Earrings, English Cut Czech Glass Crystal Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

All eyes will be on you when wearing these luminous CARIBBEAN CALM handmade earrings.  Lifting your spirits anytime you wear them, these calming beauties were created with rustic aqua Czech glass beads, glittering Swarovski crystals, leaf bead caps and sterling silver.  Called an English cut, these Czech glass beads are a rounded shape with large diamond-shaped facets cut into the surface for a somewhat irregular, worn look, as if they might have been tumbled in the surf of an idyllic beach.  The color is a rich aqua, reminiscent of the waters of the Caribbean.  The beads have a metallic silvery finish that causes them to shimmer and reflect other colors beautifully.  Since the aqua English cut beads are translucent, they positively glow when worn.  To add lovely texture and even more eye appeal, silvery pewter bead caps with a leaf design enhance the top and bottom of the glass beads.
Perfectly complementing the color of the rustic English cut glass beads, two sizes of sparkling Swarovski crystal bicones were stacked above.  The color of the faceted crystals is called “indicolite,” a lush blue green color inspired by rare blue tourmaline gemstones.  The two crystals are separated from each other by a small sterling silver bead.  Sterling silver French hooks earwires complete the design of the earrings.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the CARIBBEAN CALM earrings were created for the woman whose heart is in the Caribbean and who loves to wear unique designer jewelry.

Glass and crystals, although man made, carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  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.
