Collections of the Week: Friday, Oct 11th to Friday, Oct 18th, 2013

Happy Friday!

Here we are on the weekend already.  I hope you had a great week. Guess what? I'm the lucky winner of ' giveaway hosted at I have been admiring Catherine's works so to win a pair of her earrings really made my day. Thanks so much, Catherine! And thank you Jacki for hosting the giveaway.

Copper and turquoise are a perfect combination as this pair of handmade earrings show! Exquisitely detailed copper beads and blue Sleeping Beauty turquoise nuggets are the stars of the KASHMIR SKY earrings. Dazzling for dress up and delightful with casual clothes, the KASHMIR SKY earrings will quickly become favorites as you reach for them time and time again. The KASHMIR SKY earrings were designed and carefully handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs in a studio overlooking miles of stunning Southwestern desert.

Here is the important information for the KASHMIR SKY handmade earrings:

Fancy copper beads: app. 16 mm x 12 mm
Sleeping Beauty turquoise nuggets: on average, app. 8 mm x 9 mm
Metal: copper and sterling silver
Earwires: sterling silver French hooks with copper bead accent
Length: just a bit less than 2" / 5.1 cm

Turquoise is believed to be a stone of wholeness, promoting a sense of unity with all that surrounds us; it brings peace of mind, a soothing energy and healing of the spirit.  Said to bring wisdom and understanding, turquoise helps in the recognition of beauty, in others as well as ourselves.  It melds together the energies of the heavens with the consciousness of Mother Earth. Copper is believed to allow the wearer to recognize the barriers which are in the path of personal development. Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.
