Snowman Christmas Handmade Earrings, Swarovski Pearls Crystals Beaded Holiday Jewelry
Are you looking for a pair of holiday earrings that will take you well beyond Christmas? How about a pair of fun handmade snowman earrings? These elegant beauties, appropriately named SNOWMEN IN RED, were carefully handmade with glowing Swarovski crystal pearls, Swarovski rondelles with red crystals, jet black Swarovski crystals and sterling silver. Because these handmade snowman earrings are not like much of the traditional in your face holiday jewelry, they can be worn with your party clothes, to the office or with casual clothes. They exude a beautiful, subtle charm and will be loved and worn for years. The SNOWMEN IN RED beaded earrings were designed and handcrafted by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs.
- Large Swarovski crystal pearl: 8mm
- Small Swarovski crystal pearl: 6 mm
- Swarovski rondelle collar: app. 7 mm; Siam crystals; silver plated brass
- Swarovski crystals for hat: 6 mm faceted rondelles and 4 mm faceted bicones
- Metal: sterling silver and silver-plated brass
- Earwires: sterling silver French hooks
- Length: app. 1.5" / 3.8 cm from top curve of the earwires
The main body of the SNOWMEN IN RED dangle earrings are made with two different sizes of white Swarovski crystal pearls. Swarovski crystal pearls are man-made pearls, but unlike many synthetic pearls that use a plastic core, Swarovski pearls have a lead crystal core. Mimicking the weight of real pearls, this crystal core also allows the pearls to warm to the skin as real pearls are known for. Consisting of multiple layers of luminous pearlescence (crushed pearls) that gives the look and feel of famous South sea pearls - at a fraction of the price! Just one glance at the photos and you will notice the exquisite, glowing finish of the pearls.
To add a sparkling fun touch to the holiday earrings, silver-plated brass rondelles were used between the head and the body of the snowmen. The rondelles were set with 6 faceted Siam Swarovski crystals, adding cheerful Christmas red to the jewelry. As you can see from the photos, the color is a deep red - I just wish the photos would show the amazing sparkle. The collars give a whimsical look to the snowmen, almost like they are on their way to a formal gathering!
And all formal snowmen must wear a hat! The hats of these SNOWMEN IN RED were created with two types of crystals in jet, a true black Swarovski color. Faceted Swarovski crystal rondelles make up the brim of each hat and a 4mm faceted Swarovski crystal bicone makes up the crowns. More sparkly goodness!
The body of the earrings were strung on sterling silver head pins. The top end was carefully wire wrapped into a loop. The loop was then connected to sterling silver French hook earwires for a perfect finish to the SNOWMEN IN RED earrings.

Glass carries 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.
