Turquoise Blue Birds Handmade Earrings, Swallows Pearls Sterling Artisan Dangle Jewelry
Swooping and soaring through the sky - most of us have dreamed of doing just that while watching birds flying through the air. The one of a kind TOUCH THE SKY swallow earrings won’t help you physically fly, but will definitely help you soar in your day dreams. Perfect artisan jewelry for the woman who loves birds, the focal of the earrings are turquoise blue colored Czech glass ovals with a swallow imprinted on each side. To bring out the lovely detail and to add a vintage flair, a Picasso finish of amber, olive and darker brown was applied to the beads. The finish was polished off the face of the bead to reveal the gorgeous turquoise glass below but left in the recessed areas of the birds and on the edges. Because of the way Czech glass beads are made, each swalow image is just a bit different, looking as if they are handmade. A small copper disc was added to cap the top and bottom of each bead. Due to the two sided nature of the bird beads, the earrings look glorious from any angle when worn.
To continue with the flight theme, a glowing freshwater pearls was wire wrapped with copper wire to the bottom of each swallow bead. The pearls are brown with a slight greenish luster. Since the pearls swing and dance with every movement of the head, they are a perfect complement, almost as if they are flying themselves. A faceted Swarovski crystal bicone in a rich brown color, called “light Colorado topaz,” was stacked on top of the bird beads to add eye catching sparkle. Sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents beautifully finish the earrings. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog designs, the TOUCH THE SKY bird earrings were created for the woman who loves joyous, one of a kind earrings.
