Vintage Crystal Fan Earrings, Purple White Opal Gold Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

What a gorgeous jewelry gift for the woman who loves a sparkling vintage vibe!  The one of a kind BIJOU handmade earrings feature lightweight vintage crystal clusters on modern corrugated gold fans, Swarovski crystals, copper and sterling silver.  By themselves, the gold plate over brass corrugated fans would be eye-catching.  But what makes these fans a cut above are the vintage Austrian crystal clusters (perhaps Swarovskis?) that are mounted on them.  The larger middle crystal is a rich purple color called “amethyst,” named after the gemstone sporting the same purple.  Surrounding the amethyst crystals are eight smaller white opal crystals that shimmer and have an iridescent quality depending on the angle of the light.  Truly beautiful!  The back of the gold fans are smooth. 
To add even more sparkle and to perfectly complement the crystals on the fans are two colors and sizes of Swarovski crystals.  The larger crystal is a faceted bicone and, just like the center crystal on the fan, is amethyst purple.  The top crystal, separated by a small copper bead, is faceted white opal AB bicone.  It has the same iridescence as the crystal on the fan but also has a special aurora borealis coating on ½ of the crystal, adding a rainbow brilliance.  Sterling silver French hook earwires with amethyst purple Swarovski crystal accents finish the beautiful earrings.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the lightweight-to-wear BIJOU dangle earrings were created for the woman who loves one of a kind, artisan jewelry with a wonderful vintage look.  “Bijou” is French for “a jewel.”

Hand fans, used over the centuries to keep cool, were once also used to drive away evil spirits.  Even though man made, crystals (glass) carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication. Brass is used to help develop strength of 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 BIJOU one of a kind cross 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!
