Seahorse Ocean Earrings, Turquoise Mykonos Czech Glass Handmade Beach Jewelry for Women

Item Description

The CABALLOS DEL MAR handmade seahorse earrings are perfect for the woman who has more than a bit of mermaid in her and feels the ancient siren song of the ocean.  The one of a kind earrings feature two sided seahorse charms, glowing Czech glass melon beads, turquoise Czech glass beads, copper and sterling silver.  The eye catching seahorse charms were handcrafted by artisans on the island of Mykonos, Greece.  The charms were created from copper over a base of lead free pewter and then given a rich turquoise patina that gives the seahorses an aged, wave tossed look.  The patina also brings out the incredible raised detailing of the face and the sinuous curved body of the seahorses.  Since each were individually made, the seahorses are very similar but not exactly the same, as you can see in the photographs.  As mentioned above, the seahorses are two sided so the earrings look fabulous from any angle.  The charms were carefully wire wrapped on copper wire to attach to the top section of the earrings.

 

To continue with the beach theme, two types of Czech glass drenched in ocean and sky colors were stacked above the seahorses.  The first is an opalized, pale aqua melon shaped bead that positively glows when worn.  To add even more interest, the melons have a matte blue Picasso finish that settled in the recessed areas for an aged effect.  A copper spacer disc caps the top and bottom of the opalized melons. Stacked on top is a single turquoise Czech glass bead in a rich turquoise blue color.  The beauties are subtly faceted for sparkle and have a light Picasso finish of tan and brown.  A single 2 mm copper bead nestles into the top of each turquoise bead.

 

All of the elements used to create the artisan earrings were strung on copper wire, wire wrapped and connected to sterling silver French hook earwires with a copper bicone accent.  Created for the woman who loves wearing artisan made jewelry, the CABALLOS DEL MAR seahorse earrings were carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs.  “Caballos del Mar” is Spanish for “seahorses.”

Seahorses are symbolic of patience, imagination and creativity.  Pewter is believed to be very grounding, bringing the wearer back to reality.  Even though man made, glass is said to carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication. 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.


The CABALLOS DEL MAR 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!
