Spiral Goddess Earrings, Copper Purple Crystals Pagan Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

The unique SPIRAL GODDESS handmade earrings are based on a beautiful pagan symbol that has been used for millennia, from ancient to modern societies in art, rituals and legends, to celebrate the beauty of the sacred feminine.  The meaningful one of a kind earrings feature copper spiral goddess dangles in an inverted teardrops shape, artisan amethyst purple lampwork glass beads and Swarovski crystals.  The goddess charms were individually artisan-created:  molded, shaped, carved and fired in a kiln from beginning to end from precious metal copper clay.  A spiral goddess design is imprinted on each dangle providing a wonderful texture, a woman with raised arms meeting above her head and a spiral in her belly.  The charms were torched at high heat to bring out the details so they have a rich, rustic copper patina on the front and back.  Since the charms were individually handmade, they are very similar but not exactly the same.  The backs of the charms are slightly domed and are mostly smooth with a bit of the goddess design showing through.  The artisan charms were carefully wire wrapped with copper wire to attach to the upper part of the earrings.   
To perfectly complement the spiral goddess charms, artisan made lampwork glass beads and Swarovski crystals were used.  The lampwork glass beads are a luscious light amethyst purple color with a frosted sea glass finish.  Due to the matte finish, the purple beads seem to capture and radiate light - they positively glow when the earrings are worn.  On top of the lampwork beads, separated by two copper flower spacers and a single copper disc spacer, is a color shifting faceted Swarovski crystal bicone in a color called “medium vitrail.”  Vitrail is a French word for “stained glass” which perfectly describes the crystals.  The colorful effect is due to a permanent multicolor foil applied to ½ of the crystal.  The light catches the foil through the facets and reflects back out a shimmering display of colors:  greens, pinks, blues, purple and golds, among others.  The colors shift as the angle of the light changes. It almost looks as if the goddess is reaching for a particularly brilliant aurora borealis display.  Sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents finish the earrings.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog designs, the SPIRAL GODDESS earrings are a perfect gift for the woman who adores ancient goddess symbols (and has a huge amount of goddess in herself!) and loves unique artisan handmade jewelry.

A spiral goddess is a symbol of life and represents the keeper of wisdom; she is associated with Earth, motherhood, love, and the household:  the divine feminine. Spirals represent the path of life, the ever continuing cycle of life, death and rebirth.  Copper is believed to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.  Even though man made, crystals (glass) are said to 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.

The unique SPIRAL GODDESS 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!
