Details

What a fun pair of handmade earrings these PERFECTLY PINK earrings are - perfect to perk up your Spring and Summer wardrobe! Created with hot pink mother of pearl flat coins with a gold paint drizzle finish, Swarovski crystals and sterling silver, they will quickly become a favorite pair of earrings, a unique, stylish pair you will reach for time and time again. The one of a kind (OOAK) earrings were carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs for the woman who loves beautiful, handcrafted jewelry.


Here is the important information for the PERFECTLY PINK earrings:

Hot pink mother of pearl coins: app. 20mm x 3.5 mm; drizzled with gold paint
Swarovski crystals: 6 mm "rose AB" faceted rounds
Metal: sterling silver
Earwires: French hooks; sterling silver
Length: app. 2" / 5.1 cm from top curve of the earwires


The stars of the PERFECTLY PINK handmade earrings are the stunning hot pink mother of pearl coins. Mother of pearl is naturally an off white color, often with a rainbow luminescence when the light hits it just right. The coins used in the earrings have been dyed, of course, a glowing hot pink color and then highly polished. Boy, do they ever catch the light! Even with the dye, you can still see the rainbow effect when the light strikes the mother of pearl at the right angle. What makes the mother of pearl beads especially unique is the gold paint that was drizzled over the surface of the coins. The paint was drizzled in a random pattern so no sides are alike, giving the coins interesting texture. As with most mother of pearl beads, one side is darker than the other, which you can see in photo #8, although the picture makes the colors appear much lighter than they actually are. The coins are framed with a sterling silver daisy spacer and 2 mm bead at the bottom and a daisy spacer at the top.

To add even more visual appeal and sparkle, I chose to use a 6 mm "rose AB" Swarovski crystal round above the mother of pearl, a perfect color match. The "AB" stands for "aurora borealis" which is a special coating given to some Swarovski crystals to make them even more sparkly. The AB coating is seen in the photos as a silver-like spot on the crystals. In real life, the spots reflect back greens, purples, silver and pinks. A 2 mm sterling silver bead was placed at the top of each crystal. Swarovski crystals are known worldwide for their beautiful colors and stunning sparkle. The Swarovski company, originally founded in Austria in 1895, developed a patented technique that creates the industry standard in manufacturing precision crystal glass beads, figurines and other decorative items.

The main body of the earrings were strung on handmade (by me) sterling silver headpins with a small hand hammered loop at the end. The headpins were then carefully wire wrapped to form a loop at the top. The loop was then connected to a pair of sterling silver earwires for a perfect finish to the earrings.

For a better understanding of the relative size of the PERFECTLY PINK earrings, please be sure to check out photo #9 for a size comparison with a dime.

Mother-of-pearl is believed to stimulate intuition, sensitivity and imagination; additionally, it symbolizes faith and charity and helps enhance personal integrity. Even though manmade, glass (crystal) is believed 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.

The PERFECTLY PINK earrings will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!

***Please be aware that not all computer monitors show colors exactly the same. The colors of the stones are extremely close to the actual color on my monitor. They may appear lighter or darker on yours.
