Sky Blue Silver Lampwork Dangle Earrings, Handmade Jewelry Gift Women



blue earrings for women



Your ears will receive a rich jolt of color each and every time you wear these stunningly beautiful blue dangle earrings! Both stylish and classic, the unique BLUE SKIES earrings feature artisan made lampwork beads individually created from shiny transparent sky blue glass. Each glass bead was wrapped around the middle with .999 fine silver, a whimsical look of silver dots that add great texture and sheen. Since each blue lampwork bead was handmade, you can see from the photos that the pattern of fine silver dots are similar but not the same. When worn, the glass sometimes looks lighter or darker depending on the angle of the light - whichever shade of blue is seen, however, the one of a kind earrings positively glow!

To frame the sky blue glass, sterling silver daisy spacers were added to the top and bottom of each lampwork bead. To mimic the fine silver dots on the sky blue glass, glowing sterling silver beads in three different sizes were stacked on top. The sizes are, in order from bottom to top: 4 mm, 3 mm and 2 mm. All of the elements used in the earrings were strung on sterling silver headpins, carefully wire wrapped and connected to sterling French hook earwires. The glowing dangles are perfect to wear with your faded jeans and white shirt or with your favorite party dress. A perfect jewelry gift, the glowing BLUE SKIES earrings were designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs for the woman who adores wearing one of a kind artisan jewelry that is not mass produced.

If you adore unique, boho jewelry, you will truly adore the exotic looking CASABLANCA DREAMING handmade earrings. The beautiful, one of a kind earrings feature swirling solid bronze dangles set with a lavender crystal, lavender and orange lampwork glass beads and Swarovski crystals. The bronze dangles were artisan handmade from pur bronze. The flowing design in filled with arches, lines and dots reminiscent of the architecture detailing found in the bazaars, mosques and churches that might be found when wandering the streets of Casablanca. For added interest, a small lavender crystal was set under an arch, adding unexpected sparkle to the bronze dangles. The dangles are rounded diamond shape with slight curves in the long sides. The back of the dangles are mostly smooth. Since the bronze pieces were individually created, there dangles are very similar but there are slight differences as you can see in the photos.

To highlight the color of the bronze and the lavender crystal, lampwork glass beads and Swarovski crystals were stacked above the dangles. The lampwork beads were individually artisan created from a base of luscious medium orange glass with a layering of lavender glass frit. Some of the orange can be seen through the lavender, as well as the top and bottom of the beads. A “violet” purple Swarovski crystal, adding fun sparkle, sits above the glass beads, separated by a single copper daisy spacer.

Virgin Mary Catholic Necklace, Bless This Woman Handmade Jewelry Gift



virgin mary and cross necklace with gemstones for women




The BLESS THIS WOMAN handmade necklace is a perfect jewelry gift for the woman of Catholic faith. The one of a kind necklace features a meaningful, two sided Virgin Mary and cross pendant, pink rose quartz and black onyx - an eye catching necklace filled with great symbolism that is sure to be noticed anytime it is worn. The wonderfully textured, two-sided pendant was cast in the U.S. in the old Liberty coin style from lead free pewter. One side of the pendant features the Virgin Mary against a budded cross with trailing roses, long associated with Mary, flowing out from each side of the figure. The reverse side has a meaningful inscription, “Bless This Woman,” underneath a raised five petaled flower, Our Lady’s Cushion, said to have formed cushions on which Mary sat during the family’s flight into Egypt. The pendant was heavily oxidized and then polished to bring out the raised details, which glow more greatly in real life than the photos show. More details about the symbolism of the pendant can be found below.



bless this woman virgin mary and cross jewelry with gemstones




Because of the feminine beauty of the pendant, but also the strength the Virgin Mary showed during her life, pink rose quartz and black onyx were used as perfect complements. Known as the “gemstone of love,” light pink rose quartz rounds are found at the front of the necklace, seven rounds on each side. Separating the rose quartz rounds are black onyx rondelles - black onyx believed to be a powerful “gemstone of protection” - and sterling silver beads. The back of the necklace is finished with more black onyx, this time an elongated shape with a unique twist, each separated by sterling silver beads. A sterling silver hook clasp set finishes the lovely necklace. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the BLESS THIS WOMAN is a special necklace for the woman who adores unique, one of a kind Christian jewelry. Just imagine this beauty on yourself or on someone you love, a constant reminder of the wearer’s love of the Blessed Virgin.

If you love the color blue, especially the breath taking richness of cobalt blue, you will definitely love the FLEURS BLEUES handmade earrings! The unique flower earrings feature blue Czech glass pansy beads and Swarovski crystals. The pansies were created with translucent cobalt blue glass.

Bronze Spirals and Dichroic Pendant Necklace, Nepal Sherpa Glass Handmade Jewelry


spiral and dichroic pendant necklace for women



The ANCIENT VOICES handmade pendant necklace is definitely a piece of jewelry filled with beauty and wonder! The one of a kind necklace features a bronze pendant covered in swirling spirals and a glowing dichroic glass cabochon, vintage Nepali Sherpa glass tube beads, black onyx and copper. The pendant was artisan crafted from pure bronze and is covered with spirals, an ancient, sacred symbol that represents the unfolding changes during the journey of life. Centered in the middle of the pendant is a magical looking dichroic glass cabochon that capture the light and radiates many colors: aqua, turquoise, dark navy blue, grass green, orange, pink, white and other colors depending on how the angle of the light hits the glass.

To perfectly complement the bronze pendant, turquoise blue and black glass tube beads and two sizes (5 mm and 3 mm) of round black onyx gemstones were used. The vintage tube beads were individually handmade from recycled glass by Sherpas in Nepal - just imagine the hands that made these wondrous beads! Since the beads were fire cured, they have a gorgeous, organic look. Because of the handmade nature, each vintage Sherpa bead is slightly different in size and shape, so they don’t lay in a “perfect” line, as you can see in the photos, giving a wonderfully rustic flair to the design. Between each group of Sherpa beads is a single round 5 mm black onyx gemstone capped on each end with a small copper disc spacer. The smaller black onyx beads and a copper toggle clasp set finishes the back of the unique necklace. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the ANCIENT VOICES necklace was created for the women who treasures and oves to wear one of a kind, artisan jewelry with a story.
