Southwest Church Crosses Earrings, Yellow Blue Green Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Perfectly named, the SOUTHWEST SERENITY handmade earrings are both beautiful and lightweight to wear.  The one of a kind earrings feature artisan made dangles, sunflower yellow Czech glass beads and sterling silver.  The exquisite square shaped dangles were created from artists’ backboard, a heavy duty archival quality paper board.  A permanent transfer was applied.  As you can see in the photos, the design on the dangles is a serene looking Southwest style church or mission with trees.  The main entrance of the church is red and two bell towers are found on either side in the classic white stucco of Southwest missions.  A cross tops the left bell tower and the entrance.  A large tree is found to the left of the church and a smaller one to the right.  The sky is a rich blue and the grass is green, perhaps after a monsoon rain.  The charms were given several coats of a sealant for long wear.   Please note:  the artist who made these charms says “although these findings have been sealed on all sides and edges, they are not suitable for wearing in the shower or any water sport activities.”
Because the earrings have a Southwest design with a wide blue sky, there is almost always a blazing sun.  To perfectly mimic the sun, three faceted sunflower yellow Czech glass rondelles were used.  Two of the glittering yellow rondelles are stacked above the dangles, separated by a sterling silver daisy spacers, and one dangles below.  The yellow glass beads are translucent so they glow amazingly when the earrings are worn and, because of the faceting, they add sparkle.  Sterling silver French hook earrings finish the beautiful earrings.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the unique and lightweight SOUTHWEST SERENITY earrings were created for the woman who adores exploding Southwest churches / missions and loves to wear one of a kind artisan jewelry.

Even though man made, glass and crystals carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is believed to be a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.
