Southwest Cross Earrings, Pewter Silver Blue Handmade Jewelry Gift

Item Description

The meaningful AMOR DE DIOS handmade earrings are a perfect jewelry gift for the woman of Christian faith.  The one of a kind earrings were created with two-sided silver pewter crosses with a Southwest design, faceted periwinkle blue Czech glass beads and sterling silver.  The beautiful crosses were made from lead free / cadmium free pewter with a detailed, inscribed Southwest design. The center is a sun/flower design surrounded by a crosshatched square representing rain.  A mountain with rising sun design is found on each arm. The beads were given a patina and then polished, leaving the patina in the recessed areas to bring out the beauty of the Southwest design. The pewter is a bright silver color and positively glows - something that is hard to show in the photos since the crosses are highly reflective (please ignore the darker areas on the crosses since they were mirroring my shirt, the sky, etc.).  Since the cross charms are two sided, the earrings are beautiful from any angle.
 
Since most days in the the Desert Southwest are blessed with blue skies, faceted blue Czech glass beads cap the crosses on the top and bottom, separated by small sterling silver daisy spacers.  The Czech beads shade from a lovely delphinium blue to pale blue with translucent and opaque glass depending on how you are looking at them. The faceting of the glass ebads adds subtle sparkle to the overall earrings design.  Sterling silver French hook earwires finish the earrings perfectly. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the AMOR DE DIOS cross earrings were created for the woman who adores wearing unique, one of a kind designer cross jewelry.  “Amor de Dios” is Spanish for “God’s love.”

Pewter is believed to be very grounding, bringing the wearer back to reality.  Even though man made, 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.

 

The AMOR DE DIOS 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!
