RESERVED. Tiger Face Boho Earrings, Ceramic Lampwork Pearls Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

RESERVED FOR CAROLYNE.  PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE IF YOU AREN'T HER - Go more than a little wild when wearing the LOS TIGRES handmade earrings!  The earrings are almost hypnotizing in their unique boho beauty - just take a look at the intense expression on the faces of the majestic tigers.  The one of a kind earrings feature artisan made ceramic tiger face shield shaped dangles, rustic artisan lampwork bead nuggets, Swarovski pearls and Swarovski crystals - all mixed together to create a pair of earrings you’ll want to wear over and over again.   The tiger shield-shaped charms were individually handmade from ceramic earthstone, bronze clay, a gloss glaze, black and white tiger face ceramic decals and final lustre glaze. The charms were kiln fired a total of three times for strength and durability.  As you can see, the tiger faces are exquisite in their detailing and power, each one just a bit different as with real tiger faces. The shields are curved towards the back; the back scorched to a shimmery finish (see photo # 9). Despite being rather large earrings, they are lightweight to wear.  “Los tigres” is Spanish for ”the tigers.”
 
To  perfectly complement the tiger shield charms, rustic lampwork glass bead nuggets also individually artisan made, were stacked above the dangles.  They started out as a base of taupe glass that were heavily etched. Then a layer of translucent mellow yellow glass with frit speckles was added around the middle of each.  When the frit was added, it produced spots and speckles in shades of blue, dark red-brown and green with a prismatic effect in sunlight. Since the beads are nuggets, they are not exactly the same size and shape.  To counter the heavily rustic appearance of the lampwork beads, sleek and shiny white Swarovski crystal pearls were added on top, separated by sterling silver daisy spacers. Then, to highlight the blue specks of the lampwork beads, indigo blue Swarovski crystals cap the white pearls and were added to the sterling silver French hook earwires.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the LOS TIGRES earrings were created for the woman who loves the magnificent animals and who loves to wear one of a kind artisan jewelry.

Tigers are a symbol of willpower, personal strength and courage.  Even though man made, ceramics, glass and crystals carry 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 one of a kind LOS TIGRES artisan tiger 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!
