Tribal Mask Face Earrings, Tibetan Eye Agate Boho Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

Filled with the distinctive cadences of ethnic jewelry, the TRIBAL MASKS handmade earrings will fill your desire for unique boho jewelry!  The one of a kind earrings feature artisan made copper tribal face mask dangles, Tibetan eye agate and ruby red and turquoise Czech glass beads.  The oh-so-fun mask charms were individually artisan created from pure copper. The design is a tribal face with open eyes and lines (or tattoos) on the cheeks.  The charms have wonderful texture since the nose and mouth are raised against the background and the facial lines are etched. Torched at high heat to give a lustrous patina, the charms were then polished to bring out the detail and sealed. The tribal masks have a beautiful copper glow that the photos don’t do justice to.  Since the charms were individually created, you can see that there are slight differences in each charm - guaranteed handmade! The back of the charms are fairly smooth and a bit convex.
Tibetan eye agate and Czech glass beads were stacked above the tribal mask faces.  From ancient times, gemstones with an “eye” have been valued highly. They are believed to ward away the evil eye, change negative energy into positive and to balance life.  As the name implies, these agate gemstone beads are from Tibet, adding even more ethnic vibes to the design. The gemstones are translucent when worn, positively glowing, each stone having two eyes for even more good luck.  To add pops of color to the earrings, faceted ruby red Czech glass nuggets and turquoise Czech glass discs are found above the agate, separated from the gemstones by a copper disc spacer. Sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents finish the motif perfectly.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the TRIBAL MASKS earrings were created for the woman who adores wearing one of a kind, boho jewelry.

Since ancient times (at least 9000 years ago), masks have been worn during celebrations, rituals, initiations, crop harvesting, war preparation, peace and troubled times for a variety of different reasons depending on the culture.  Tibetan eye agate is said ward away the evil eye, change negative energy into positive and to balance life. Even though man made, glass and crystal 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 TRIBAL MASKS artisan 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!
