Tibetan Copal Bead Earrings, Turquoise Coral Nepal Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Even through the one of a kind TIBETAN SOUL handmade earrings are small in size, they are huge in boho, ethnic style!  The lightweight earrings feature artisan copal amber inlaid beads, real turquoise, copper and sterling silver.  Bought Fair Trade, the unique Tibetan beads were individually handmade in Nepal by Tibetan artists who have fled their country.  Created in the traditional manner, the beads were made from amber copal, a natural tree sap that hardens like amber and that has been used for centuries to create jewelry.  The rich amber colored beads are inlaid around the middle with real turquoise and red coral.  Since the Tibetan beads are individually made, each bead varies somewhat from the other, as you can see in the photos.  A copper disc spacer caps the top and bottom of each copal bead.  
To perfectly highlight the turquoise in each Tibetan bead, genuine turquoise rounds sit on top.  The turquoise beads have a greenish cast to them, matching the color of many of the turquoise flakes.  A small copper bead sits on top.  Sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents finish the lovely earrings.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the TIBETAN SOUL earrings are a wonderful gift for the woman who loves to wear lightweight, ethnic inspired jewelry.

Copal is associated with the fulfillment of dreams and goals, and ideals; it is said to help balance the yin and yang creating calmness.  Turquoise is a stone of wholeness, promoting a sense of unity with all that surrounds us; it is believed to bring peace of mind, a soothing energy and healing of the spirit.  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 TIBETAN SOUL artisan Tibetan bead 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!
