Shaman Petroglyph Earrings, Ceramic Turquoise Boho Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Looking as if they were carefully dug up from an archaeological site, the UNIVERSE INSIDE MY HEAD shaman petroglyph earrings are a fabulous gift for the woman who loves otherworldly, rustic jewelry designs with a boho flair.  The one of a kind earrings feature artisan ceramic shaman dangles, genuine turquoise cubes, Swarovski crystals, copper and sterling silver.  The unique shaman dangles, reminiscent of an ancient cave painting or petroglyphs (such as the Sun-Headed Deity of Tamgaly, Kazakhstan), were individually artisan handmade from brown ceramic clay.  A raised design found on each square:  a shaman arms raised to the heavens and beams of energy emitting from his head as the cosmos dances around him.  The shaman dangles were coated with a turquoise greenish-blue glaze  which settled in the recessed areas during the kiln firing, leaving the raised lines, dots and edges a rich brown.  The glaze is high sheen, so all photos show areas of reflection (the lighter areas).  The back side of the dangles are unglazed (see photo # 10).  
Perfectly highlighting the ceramic shaman dangles are real turquoise cubes.  As you can see in the photos, each side of the cubes are different, the color ranging from sky blue to a greenish cast.  Some sides have natural brown matrix and some don’t.  Sitting above each turquoise cbe, separated by a copper tube spacer, is a sparkling faceted Swarovski crystal bicone in a lovely brown color called “smoked topaz.”  The crystals add an eye-catching sparkle to the design.  Sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents finish the unique earrings.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the UNIVERSE INSIDE MY HEAD petroglyph shaman earrings were created for the woman who loves boho jewelry with a mystical vibe.

Ceramics symbolize the four elements needed to create it:  earth, air, fire and water.  Turquoise, a gemstone sacred to the Navajo, Zuni and other Native Americans, is a stone of wholeness, promoting a sense of unity with all that surrounds us; it is believed to bring peace of mind, a soothing energy and healing of the spirit.  Even though man made, crystals are said to carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Copper is said 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 UNIVERSE INSIDE MY HEAD  artisan ceramic shaman 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!
