Yellow Sunflowers van Gogh Art Earrings, Polymer Clay Handmade Jewelry

Item Description

The cheerful YELLOW SUNFLOWERS art earrings are inspired by the famous, much loved 1888 painting, called “Sunflowers,” by Vincent van Gogh.  The unique, one of a kind earrings were created with rectangle-shaped polymer clay art dangles, glowing premium Czech glass roller beads, copper and sterling silver.  The unique dangles are individually artisan crafted from high quality black polymer clay with a permanent van Gogh art transfer of his third version of yellow sunflowers in a vase. The floral earrings are mirror images.  For durability and shine, the dangles were given several coats of varnish.  A black border frames the beautiful floral scene. The backside of the dangles are black and inscribed with the artist’s mark. Since the dangles are made from polymer clay, the earrings are very lightweight to wear.  Please note:  in the original painting, the brightly colored yellow sunflowers are near the upper right hand corner.
Sunflowers (“Tournesols” in French)) is the name of two series of still life paintings by  Vincent van Gogh. The first series, a set of four, was painted in Paris in 1887 showing the flowers lying on the ground.  The second series of four were painted a year later in Arles, a bouquet of bright yellow sunflowers in a vase.  Then in 1889, he painted three repetitions.  The sunflowers in the vases series were produced during a time of excited optimism as van Gogh was trying to set up a community of artists in the yellow house he rented.  He invited his friend, the famous artist Paul Gauguin, to be its mentor.  In the months before Gaugin arrived, Van Gogh painted with intensity and joy, often three works going on at the same time.  Unfortunately van Gogh’s dream of an artist’s colony did not work.  Van Gogh and Gaugin argued over almost everything, Gaugin left after showering intense criticism on van Gogh.  After that, van Gogh became even more mentally unstable, eventually cutting off an ear and then being admitted to a hospital in Arles.  He later entered a mental asylum in Saint-Rémy.  For more information about the “Sunflowers” series, please follow this link: 
To perfectly highlight the beautiful shades of yellow of the sunflowers, premium quality Czech glass roller beads.  Two roller beads are stacked on each other above the dangles.  The faceted, translucent beads are a luscious golden translucent glass, a color called “cashmere,” with a shiny metallic Picasso finish.  When held up to the light, the beads positively glow, and since they are faceted, they add subtle sparkle.  On top of the roller beads are stacked two copper flower spacers, a 3 mm copper bead and a copper bicone to add a warm glow for which copper is famous.  Sterling silver French hook earwires with an added copper bicone finishes the earrings beautifully.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the YELLOW SUNFLOWERS earrings were created for the woman who loves to wear unique art jewelry based on the paintings of famous artists.

Sunflowers symbolize unwavering faith and unconditional love. Even though man made, glass is said to carry the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication. Copper is believed to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.  Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is believed to be a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.
