Dragonfly Earrings Colorful Crystal Clusters Czech Leaf Beads Handmade

Details

These sparkling crystal cluster handmade earrings are little celebrations of the summer that feature lovely dragonfly charms, Czech glass leaf beads, and a multi-color offering of beautiful Swarovski bicones. The dragonfly charms are 22K gold-plated pewter from TierraCast and made in the USA. They are two-sided (with the details on both sides of the charms) and finely detailed, as you can see in my photographs. What better to go with this pretty pair than rustic green Czech-made leaf beads? These are handmade at the source and each Czech bead is always unique in some way. These two leaves were carefully selected (by me) and made lovely companions. The clusters of Swarovski bicones add fun sparkle and more brightness to the leaves and dragonflies, and provide a little garden of color for imagined dragonflies to explore. :)

In the design for this special pair of earrings, the charms hang from the bottom loops of 22K gold-plated pins. From the bottom up, each pin sports a leaf bead, two gold-plated corrugated spacer beads, and a top wire wrap. The beautiful crystals, wired and wrapped, are gathered by a TierraCast jump ring to form a light-catching cluster. There are seven crystals in each cluster:

- Two "Fern Green" (4mm)
- Two "Padparadscha" orangey-pink (6mm, 4mm)
- One "Amethyst" purple (5mm)
- One "Astral Pink" (4mm)
- One Clear AB ("Aurora Borealis"; 4mm)

These crystals are arranged so that the clusters mirror each other across the earrings. The larger bicones have corrugated spacer beads added to them and a triple wire wrap. The smaller (4mm) bicones have a double wire wrap.

The earring hooks are 22K gold-plated French style wires and come with clear earnuts to help keep this pretty pair more secure on your ears.

The length for these earrings is approximately 2 1/8 inches, including the earring hooks. Please see my photos for a measurement comparison with a ruler.

All together, this is a brightly eye-catching and cheerful pair of earrings that will continue to evoke the beauty of summer all year round, even in the chilly darker times of winter. :)


About Dragonflies

These beautiful insects have been gracing the earth for millions of years and thus are quite ancient. They are an important symbol in Japan, where dragonflies represent good luck and strength. Some people believe that dragonflies symbolize immortality and can act as a sign of the afterlife from deceased loved ones. Others, particularly some Native American cultures, see them as meaningful signs of purity.

Myself, I love dragonflies because they tend to be rather bold and fearless, and they don't seem too upset if a person holds a camera lens near them or ventures to pet their tails (yes, it's possible to pet dragonflies!). I particularly like the hints of color that can be seen in certain types of dragonflies, and I was thinking of those as well as colorful gardens and woodland flowers when making the crystal clusters for these earrings.

Materials Used

Dragonfly charms (22K gold-plated pewter; 15mm), Czech leaf beads, Swarovski crystal bicones (6mm, 5mm, 4mm; see listing for colors), 22K gold-plated ear hooks, earnuts, gold-plated corrugated spacer beads, jump rings

Policies

Welcome to Pretty Gonzo! Your visit is valued! I love jewelry, and what I make is the type of jewelry I would wear myself or give as gifts to friends and relatives. Every piece, however simple, is a little statement about the person wearing it, and I always hope that my jewelry will bring happiness to the person destined to wear it.

CLIP-ON and PIERCED CONVERSION: If you wear clip-ons, I can convert any pair of earrings in my shop into clip-ons for you at no extra charge. Just ask! I can also convert any clip-ons to pierced wires.

-----SHIPPING METHOD-----

HANDMADE JEWELRY:

United States: Items are shipped First-Class USPS with Tracking.

Other Countries: Items are shipped USPS First-Class Mail International. Again, you are responsible for any customs fees, surcharges, and/or tariffs.

Earrings are shipped on earring cards in small plastic bags, wrapped in decorated paper or gift bag, and then wrapped for protection in transit. Bracelets and necklaces are shipped in a similar way (but minus the earring cards).

INSURANCE OPTION: If you would like postal insurance, please contact me. I will invoice you for the cost of insurance.

IN GENERAL: As someone who has made many online purchases, I know how nice it is to experience quick shipping from a seller. My goal is to ship your order promptly once I have received payment.


-----RETURN POLICY-----

If you have a situation where this timeframe poses a problem for you, please let me know before ordering. Also, I do allow extensions for holidays such as Christmas and Valentine's Day, as some people buy early.

You are responsible for shipping with tracking (U.S.). Items should be in their original condition with their original wrapping and packing materials. Any earring cards or gift bags should be included.


-----REFUND POLICY-----

Refunds for Handmade Jewelry: I will refund for the purchase price minus shipping.

Refunds for Vintage Items: I will refund vintage items for the purchase price minus shipping.


-----OTHER POLICIES-----

Non-receipt: Tracking provides information on the item's progress to its destination, and I bring my shipments directly to the post office rather than using pick-up. I will do my best to help you if items go astray. Again, always make sure the shipping address you provide is current.

Damage: If an item arrives damaged, please contact me ASAP. I will repair/replace damaged handmade jewelry if you ship it back to me. Also, please see option for postal insurance above. I do pack items well to minimize any problem with damage.

My wife loves spirals and loved the spiral earrings I bought for our anniversary. As she is a jewelry maker she is pretty particular about what she wears. The packaging was very sweet as well. We'll be back.
