Ah, Dizzy Drops. So much I could say about them.
Suffice to say that one afternoon, my niece and I were enjoying some fondue (random, I know), and she asked if I could make spirals. Well, yes, I can make spirals. She asked if I could put it on a phone as a charm. Um, no, it would just smush.
After some thought, I came up with what is now my Dizzy Drop, named by said niece.
After the birth of the Dizzy Drop, I wondered what else it could do - other than be a phone charm or a pull tag. I realized they could be pendants. Better yet, they could be earrings!
Raspberry Swirl is the first pair I did, mainly because I wanted red, to see what I could do with it. I created a fade out of every red I had, primarily using Ruby, and added black and pink for a bit of contrast. The end result looked a little bland, until I added the teardrops as dangles. The overall effect made me think of a raspberry. The spiral made me think of "swirl". The combination made me think of a song by Tori Amos. The name stuck.
Every Dizzy Drop is unique from drop to drop, so yours may not be identical to these, though the same fade and core will be used.
Want a pair of Dizzy Drops unique to you? Just ask! I can use any color/color combination/color fade you'd like! Just let me know what colors you want, and I'll design them just for you! If I don't have the colors you're looking for, I can likely order them!
These earrings are made with entirely Sterling Silver materials, including the hand-made ear-wires, though they can be created in Silver-Plated.
Other ear-attachments are available, see below for more information.
These unique earrings are $40.00 and may be purchased here:
Raspberry Swirl Dizzy Drop Earrings
NOTE: Earring attachments:
Lever-backs are available only in Silver Plated (You may special order Sterling Silver lever-backs, but they are expensive. Ask for a quote on these before you purchase!!).
Fish-hooks are available in both materials, hand-made by me in several different styles, including plain loop fronts, decorative loop fronts, loops with crystal accents, long backs, short backs, circles, half-hearts, flat-fronts, and in different combinations according to what you may want! Just let me know what style you would like when you purchase.
PLEASE NOTE: If no style is requested, I will send the earrings with what I call "Decorative Loop, Short", which is the style shown in most of my photographs that feature hand-crafted fish-hook style ear-wires.
I also use posts on request:
Posts are available in both Sterling Silver and Silver-Plated, and in "mixed materials" (Sterling Silver Post, Silver Plated Ball, for example), and will be ordered specifically for your requested earrings. Posts will often be more expensive, and are available in limited size balls. I can also order 14k gold or gold-filled posts for those with allergies, which will be more expensive than the silver.
Ears not pierced?
No problem! I do keep Silver-Plated screw-back clip-ons in stock. (You may special order Sterling Silver clip-ons, but they are expensive. Ask for a quote on these before you purchase!!)
As always, just ask me to see what is available!
