Rustic Owl Earrings, Black Turquoise Blue Swarovski Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

With their rustic, worn look, the TWILIGHT OWLS handmade earrings are a perfect jewelry gift for a woman who is a birder or who just loves the majesty and beauty of owls.  The one of a kind beauties feature rustic, two sided Czech glass coin beads created with a whimsical owl design and light blue Swarovski crystals.  The coin-shaped owl beads, made in small batches in the Czech Republic, started out as opaque black base glass with an owl impressed into each side.  A Picasso finish of mossy lichen colors was applied and then a turquoise blue wash was added.  The blue wash settled into the recessed areas and “cracks” to highlight the details of the owl design, each side of the bead being a bit different.  Since the owl beads are two sided, the earrings look charming from any angle when worn.
 
To perfectly complement the owl design and to add mega sparkle, faceted Swarovski crystal bicones were added to the top of the owl beads, separated by a small sterling silver bead.  The color of the crystals is called “aquamarine shimmer.”  The shimmer comes from a subtle iridescent finish that flashes pale purple, pinks and silver when the light hits the crystals just right.  All the elements used to create the earrings were strung on sterling silver headpins,  wire wrapped and then connected to sterling French hook earwires.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the TWILIGHT OWLS owl earrings were created for the woman who loves to wear one of a kind artisan bird jewelry with a boho vintage look.

Owls have been honored through the history of mankind as the keeper of spirits who have passed from one plane to another; they are also associated with wisdom, foresight and sacred knowledge. Even though man made, glass and crystals are said to 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 TWILIGHT OWLS artisan handmade 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!
