Turquoise Boho Gypsy Coin Earrings, Rustic Handmade Jewelry Gift Women

Item Description

Full of fun and funky boho vibes, the well named BOHO LOVE handmade earrings are perfect for the woman who has more than a bit of free-spirited gypsy or hippie in her.  The one of a kind earrings, which have a definite aged look, feature artisan turquoise patinated copper half moons, coins, and spirals dangles along with glowing Czech glass rondelles.  The rustic boho dangles were created from two shapes. The larger is a half moon , the rounded side at the top and the flat side at the bottom. Three holes were drilled into the bottom of the half moon and coin shaped dangles were attached using copper jump rings.  To create the gorgeous turquoise color, Jax green patina liquid was applied to react with the metal. The liquid reacts differently each time used and on each piece, as you can see in the photos: a patina ranging in color from a pale turquoise through amber to a darker green.  Because the coins overlap each other, a slight whimsical tinkling sound is made when the earrings move. The backside of the dangles is mostly glowing copper but there is also some patina - see photo # 8. A lovely double copper spiral was carefully formed with copper wire and attached to the top of the half moon.
 
Above the spirals can be found faceted Czech glass rondelles in a gorgeous aqua opal color.  The rondelles positively glow when back lit. A light coating of a copper Picasso finish was applied to the top and bottom of each rondelles for a vintage look.  Since the rondelles are faceted, they add subtle sparkle to the design. Sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents finish the earring professionally.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the BOHO LOVE earrings are a perfect jewelry gift for the woman who adores artisan earrings and abhors wearing run-of-the-mill jewelry.

Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development. Although man made, glass carries 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 BOHO LOVE 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!
