BIRDIE flutter drop earrings. These iridescent sparklers are wonderful for everyday, holiday or a special occasion. The rare, vintage, dead-stock, Emerald, Swarovski Aurora Boreale Crystals capture the light and project endless rainbows everywhere you go. You literally flutter rainbows! The gorgeous faceted crystals are accented with petite, diamond-cut pyrite and completed with 14K Gold Fill components. The name Birdie is defined as little bird.
• Natural and rare, antique deadstock of the original Swarovski Crystal (unde rthe orginal trademark) from the 1930's. Emerald Crystal Aurore Boreale in a round faceted bauble. Only a few of these exist, they are truly one of a kind.
• Accented with petite, diamond cut, pyrite beads.
• Mounted in a modern design on pure 14K Gold Fill or Sterling Silver components & chain, your choice.
• The ear wires are premium, tension-back, closures to secure them in place.
The stones make a singular partnership, chosen for their shape and balance. Each gem is raw, natural, hand-cut and polished minimally to keep the integrity of the crystals. The merging of these fine details produce a distinctive set.
Measurements (approximately from hook):
1.5" or 30.8 mm long dangle (I can make them shorter or longer, convo me)
Please note minor flaws or imperfections may appear within these hand-crafted beads or inclusions within the natural, raw gems. It's one aspect of their inherent beauty.
Inspiration for this and much of my work is generated from an ethnological appreciation of different cultures. My design esthetic is influenced by primitive tribal jewelry and artifacts' as tiles, pottery, textiles, garments, and the colors and hues within all of them. I relish the ornate details within ancient weaponry and armor and am fortified by history of all genres. I find foods and herbs from different lifestyles throughout the world endlessly stimulating. I'm encouraged everyday by family, music, architecture, nature, and the ecosystems within.
One of my favorite things to do is to go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in the NYC with my amazing eight-year-old son. He now has a love and fondness for the museum experience that is growing close to his mommy's.
. . . thank you for letting me share myself with you!
