Details

Dark blue lapis lazuli, Czech glass and Thai fine silver meet to form BLUE DREAMER, a special pair of handmade, one of a kind (OOAK) gemstone earrings. Created by jewelry artist Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, these earrings can definitely be dressed up or dressed down depending on your personal inclination!

The lapis lazuli rounds used in BLUE DREAMER are divine! The color is a rich, dark blue, a prized color with lapis! To intensify the beauty of the gemstones even more, flecks of golden, shiny pyrite pepper the stone. Please take a close look at the photos to see the pyrite. These lapis stones remind me of a star-filled night sky in the desert; laying on the ground, gazing up at them and dreaming!

To enhance the beauty of the lapis lazuli rounds used in BLUE DREAMER even more, Thai Hill Tribes handmade fine silver bead caps in a leafy design were used to cup the bottom of the gemstones. Such amazing detail in the Thai bead caps! Because each cap was made by hand, there is a slight variation between the two. Since Thai Hill Tribes fine silver is more pure than sterling, up to 99.5%, it has an "old" look about it and will not tarnish as easily as sterling.

To mimic sparkling stars, dark cobalt blue faceted Czech glass beads with a Picasso finish were placed above the lapis lazuli, separated by sterling silver daisy spacers. Do these Czech beads ever sparkle when moved! The Czech glass is actually a darker color in real life than it shows in the photos - the flash used to take the photos made the blue appear lighter than it is in real life. The Czech glass has a Picasso finish to the top and bottom of the beads, a slightly green finish (which shows up lighter, once again, in the photo due to the flash).

Sterling silver daisy spacers and 2mm beads were placed at each end of the earrings to act as a frame. Hand made (by me) sterling silver headpins with a hand-hammered loop were used to collect all the elements of the earrings together. Everything was then wire-wrapped to sterling silver earwires.


Here is the important information for BLUE DREAMER:

Bead caps: handmade by Thai Hill Tribes from fine silver; leaf design

If you love the look of rich, dark blue with the glorious color of fine silver, you will love these BLUE DANCER earrings. They will become like well-loved friends, ones you reach for every day!

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

Lapis lazuli is such a magical stone with its dark blue color and star flecks of pyrite. I wanted to create a pair of earrings with these recently purchased lapis gemstones and to add a bit of sparkle to represent the stars in a night sky. The faceted Czech glass was perfect for that. The Thai bead caps were added to provide even more interest to the earrings. BLUE DREAMER is an absolutely unique, gorgeous pair of earrings!
