Aztec Inspired Sunburst Antiqued Silver and Glass Pearl Earrings
Aztec Inspired Sunburst Antiqued Silver and Glass Pearl Earrings
The design of the medallion resembling the sun reminds me of the Aztec influences on art. The methodically shaped curved rays shaping the exterior of the circle joined with the radiating circular dots culminating in the center with the one larger dot is what gives this sunburst medallion the feel of the ancient civilization. With that in mind by adding the chains dangling below the medallion only accentuated that feeling of the sun.
Each chain dangle is made with artistic silver wire, glass beads, and an antiqued silver-plated barrel shaped bead. There are three (3) of the chains on each earring. There are two short ones with a white 4mm simulated pearl link, and a silver-plated 5mm barrel bead with a 6mm dark silver gray glass pearl. The middle chain accent is also two links. One link is (2) two 4mm white simulated pearls and an antiqued silver-plated 5mm barrel bead. The last link of the middle chain is a 6mm light silver gray glass bead.
As one is wearing these delightful stylish earrings the kinetic energy is awesome. It enhances the beauty of the antiqued silver-plate metals. There is the most subtle shine and sparkle one can imagine. Even though these earring are quite long they are very comfortable to wear and will work well with any long or short hair style.

DANGLE EARRINGS: Just as the name implies, dangle earrings are those that hand and swing to and fro or from side to side. Dangle earring typically hangs below the earlobe and move. The length of the hanger varies from brand to brand. Some are short while some are longer and can even brush the shoulders.

GLASS BEADS: Defined by the Free Dictionary by Farlex:

ARTISTIC WIRE: As described by BEADUCATION:
This wire is made by first plating the copper wire with a precision layer of pure silver. Then the enamel color and tarnish resistant coating on top of this silver plating is applied. The silver plating beneath the color, adds an incredible high-shine and brilliance to the wire. Artistic Wire is a permanently colored copper wire available in a wide range of colors and gauges. It has an exclusive enamel coating which is engineered to resist tarnish, chipping and peeling.
DANGLE EARRING HISTORY:
Dangle earrings are designed to flow from the bottoms of the earlobes, and are available in various lengths from a centimeter or two, all the way to brushing the shoulders. They are generally attached to the ear by the use of thin wires, which go through the earlobe and connect to themselves in a small hook at the back. A variation is the French hook design, which merely hangs from the earlobe without closure, although small plastic retainers are sometimes used on ends of French hooks. Rarely, dangle earrings use the post attachment design.
