Rustic Dahlia Flower Earrings, Turquoise Magnesite Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

The gorgeous DAZZLING DAHLIAS handmade earrings have a lvely rustic, romantic vibe to them.  Created with unique Czech glass dahlia flower beads, turquoise howlite, copper and sterling silver, the earrings are a perfect jewelry gift for the woman who loves flowers.  The Czech glass dahlia beads are a domed coin shape that started out as mottled honeysuckle beige glass with medium brown spots.  A raised dahlia design was pressed into both sides of the glass beads to provide wonderful texture.  To bring out the details and to add a vintage look, a turquoise blue Picasso finish was applied.  The beads were then lightly polished, removing the turquoise finish in the raised areas, allowing the gorgeous base glass to show through.  As you can see in the photos above, each side of the dahlia beads are a bit different, adding interest to the overall design.  Since the dahlia beads are two sided, the earrings are exquisite from any angle.  A shiny copper disc spacer caps the top and bottom of each bead.  
 
To perfectly complement the flower beads, two turquoise howlite discs were stacked above the dahlias, separated by more copper disc spacers.  Turquoise howlite is a gemstone that is naturally an off white color.  Since it takes a dye very easily, it can often be found in many colors, the most popular being turquoise.  All the elements used to create the earrings were strung on copper headpins.  The top end of each headpin was carefully wire wrapped into a loop and connected to sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents for a perfect finish.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the DAZZLING DAHLIAS earrings were created for the woman who adores wearing one of a kind flower jewelry.

Through the centuries, flowers have been a symbol of spiritual awakening; also they have been symbols of generosity and love when they are given away.  Even though man made, glass is said to carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  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 DAZZLING DAHLIAS handmade flower 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!
