Rustic Flower Teardrop Earrings, Boho Earthy Ceramic Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Looking as if they have spent centuries in a long abandoned ancient city waiting to be found, the well-named FROM THE EARTH handmade earrings are truly rustic beauties.  The one of a kind, boho earrings feature earthy artisan handmade ceramic teardrops, darkened brass bead caps and Swarovski crystals.  Individually artisan made, the teardrops were created from terracotta colored ceramic clay.  Each one was hand molded, pressed with a flower and scroll design and then given an aged look by hand painting with engobe slips of tan and medium aqua.  The teardrops were then kiln fired at high heat (2000 degrees F) so they can withstand water, sunlight and heat.  Two flowers are found on each teardrop, separated by a scroll like design.  Very earthy in nature, you can see that there are natural pits and tiny bumps that don’t affect the integrity of the teardrops at all.  In fact, the pits are so small that you won’t notice them unless you use a magnifying glass or a close up camera lense.  Since the teardrops were artisan made, they are very similar in design but not exactly the same.  The teardrops are complemented on the top and bottom with dark patinated brass bead caps with a flower petal design.
 
To add amazing sparkle to the earring design, Swarovski crystals were used, separated from the upper bead cap by a glowing copper disc spacer.  The color is called “light Colorado topaz,” a lovely warm translucent brown.  The faceted crystal bicones are 4 mm in size, but sparkle like ones that are much bigger.  All of the elements used to create the unique earrings were strung on handmade  (by me) copper headpins with a hand hammered loop at the end and carefully wire wrapped to sterling silver earwires.  Two copper beads were added to the French hook earwires for added beauty.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the FROM THE EARTH earrings were created for the woman who loves to wear designer jewelry with a boho, rustic look.

Through the centuries, flowers have been a symbol of spiritual awakening; they are symbols of generosity and love when they are given away.  Ceramic is said to be very transformative.  Even though man made, crystal (glass) is said to carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Brass helps develop strength of spirit.  Copper is believed 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.
