Sun Charm Dangle Earrings, Mykonos Turquoise Yellow Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

The cheerful SUN’S RAYS handmade earrings are perfect to wear all spring and summer long!  Wonderful jewelry for the sun worshiper or beach goer, these beauties feature rustic Mykonos sun charms and two colors and shapes of Czech glass beads.  The unique raised sun charms were made on the Greek island of Mykonos, cast by artisans there.  The metal is lead and nickel free, plated in copper and then given a gorgeous turquoise blue green patina.  The charms were then hand buffed to bring out the beauty of the raised rays of the sun design.  The back of each charm is finished with a dark patina.  
Perfectly complementing the sun charms beautifully are Czech glass beads.  The first are rondelles in an eye catching milky opal aqua blue glass with a earthy brown Picasso bringing out the ridges on each end.  The beads are faceted around the middle for subtle sparkle.  Because they are translucent, the beads absolutely glow when worn.  Stacked above them, separated by a single copper disc spacer, are cheery sunflower yellow Czech glass rondelles.  Also faceted and translucent, they add unexpected sunny color to the overall earrings design.  A 3 mm copper beads caps each yellow rondelle.  Sterling silver French hook earwires with copper beads accents finish the handmade earrings.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the fun SUN’S RAYS earrings were created for the woman who loves one of a kind artisan jewelry.

For millennia, the sun has been a symbol of life.  Even though man made, glass carries 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 SUN’S RAYS 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!
