Christmas Snowman Handmade Earrings Swarovski Pearls Winter Jewelry

Image Description
Are you looking for a pair of holiday earrings that will take you well beyond Christmas? How about a pair of fun handmade snowman earrings? These elegant beauties, appropriately named ELEGANT SNOWMEN, were carefully handmade with glowing white Swarovski crystal pearls, black accented Swarovski crystal rondelles, black Czech glass and sterling silver. These earrings are not like your traditional "over the top" holiday jewelry - they exude a beautiful, subtle charm and will be loved and worn for years. The ELEGANT SNOWMEN earrings were hand crafted by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs The main body of the ELEGANT SNOWMEN earrings are made with two different sizes of Swarovski crystal pearls. Unlike many synthetic glass pearls which use a plastic core, Swarovski crystal pearls have a lead crystal core that mimics the weight of real pearls. The crystal core also allows the pearls to warm to the skin, as real pearls do. The pearl coating consists of multiple layers of highly luminous pearlescence giving the feel and look of beautiful South Seas pearls. As you can see in the photograph, the pearl finish is exquisite! Because of the fabulous glow of the Swarovski crystal pearls, I had a hard time photographing the earrings because the pearls reflected the colors around them (mainly me, the red shirt I was wearing and the sky). Be assured, the color of the Swarovski pearls are snow white. To add a touch of elegance to the ELEGANT SNOWMEN, almost like they were going to a formal setting, silver plated Swarovski crystal rondelles set with faceted "jet" bicones separate the larger pearl from the smaller pearl. A collar of extreme sparkle that sets off these cheerful snowmen! To complete the elegant dress of the snowmen, hats for each were created with Czech glass discs and Czech glass tube beads. The finish is extremely shiny and catches and reflects the light - an added bonus with the Swarovski crystals of the collar! The main body of the ELEGANT SNOWMEN earrings was strung on sterling silver headpins. The headpins were then carefully wire wrapped onto sterling silver French hook earwires. A perfect finish for the earrings! A note: the earwires are much more shiny than they show in the photographs.
