Talhakimt Tribal Earrings, Purple Lampwork Handmade Boho Jewelry Gift

Item Description

The one of a kind TALHAKIMT earrings are definitely filled with a tribal boho vibe, perfect for the woman who loves handmade, symbolic jewelry.  The earrings feature Czech glass beads in an ancient tribal talhakimt (also called tanfouk) motif, artisan purple lampwork glass beads, Swarovski crystals, copper and sterling silver.  The talhakimt is a Tuareg talisman that has been worn by people in Senegal, Mali, Mauritania and other countries as jewelry or used as money since at least the 1700’s.  Created from ivory colored Czech glass, the two-sided talhakimt amulets have a dark brown, tan and pinkish Picasso finish to add an aged look.  The beads are very similar with their finish but are also a bit different, adding a wonderful boho vibe.  Since the talhakimt beads are two-sided, the earrings look fabulous from any angle.
Complementing the talhakimt symbols beautifully, artisan lampwork beads and Swarovski crystals were found above.  The gorgeous lampwork glass beads, individually handmade, started out as a base of clear glass with purple and pink frit added for a speckled design.  Wonderfully translucent. the lampwork beads glow amazingly when the earrings are worn.  Adding great sparkle are faceted "amethyst blend" Swarovski crystal bicones, a rich mixture of dark amethyst purple shading to pale lavender.  Sterling silver French hook ear wires with copper bead accents.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the TALHAKIMT earrings were created for the woman who loves one of a kind artisan jewelry with a tribal boho flair!

The circle in the talhakimt amulet symbolizes female energy and the triangle represents male energy; they are considered a type of love charm and a protection symbol.  Even though man made, glass and crystals carry 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 TALHAKIMT tribal-inspired 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!
