Swarovski Rainbow Chakra Earrings Handmade Spirals Jewelry Balancing

Image Description
The colors of the rainbow have long been used to balance the chakra or life force of individuals. These handmade ARC EN CIEL earrings can't promise a more balanced life but they can promise a life filled with more sparkly goodness! A beautiful pair of beaded jewelry, these earrings were created with Swarovski crystals in rainbow / chakra colors, hand hammered spirals and sterling silver. Because they run the whole color spectrum, the earrings will look pefect with anything in your wardrobe, from wearing them to a yoga class or to a night out on the town! The ARC EN CIEL earrings were carefully handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs. ARC EN CIEL means "arc in the sky" or "rainbow" in French. Faceted Swarovski crystal 4 mm bicones in the seven colors of the rainbow, and in the balancing colors of the Chakra, were used to create these beautiful ARC EN CIEL earrings. From bottom to top the colors are: "siam" (red), "hyacinth" (orange), "light topaz" (yellow), "emerald" (green), "sapphire" (blue), "indigo" (indigo) and "purple velvet" (violet). Ever since 1892, when Daniel Swarovski invented a machine that revolutionized crystal cutting and polishing, Swarovski crystals have been considered the standard by which all other manmade crystals are judged. Their sparkle and flash is astounding as you will see when you wear these earrings! The seven crystals were stacked on top of each other. A sterling silver 2 mm bead frames the top and bottom of the stack. The 4 mm Swarovski crystal bicones were placed on handmade (by me) sterling silver head pins. Hand-formed and hand-hammered (again, by me!) spirals grace the end of each headpin. Spirals have represented the journey of life and spiritual awakening for many centuries. I thought it would be meaningful to include the spirals with the rainbow / Chakra colored crystals. To finish the ARC EN CIEL earrings perfectly, the body of the earrings were carefully wire-wrapped and then attached to sterling silver French hook earwires. For a better understanding of the relative size of the ARC EN CIEL earrings, please be sure to check out photo #6 for a size comparison with a dime. Although manmade, crystal (glass) is said to carry 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.
