Silver dreamcatcher earrings: arrowhead, turquoise and more!
Another weekend upon us. I have to say that time has been flying by quickly for sure! Busy busy at work and excited about now having a shop on my site! Look in the menu above to see beautiful hand carved jewelry by my friend Randy. But today, I will reviewing another product from Etsy (yes Etsy again…). Christmas time is fast approaching so time for you to think about what you will be buying your loved ones 🙂 I had some problems while ordering those silver dreamcatcher earrings but the shop owner was understanding and reasonable. Let’s look at those beautiful earrings.

The EmelyRose Boutique on Etsy
The EmelyRose Boutique on Etsy is operated by a shop owner by the same name. Emely, who has been in business since 2011, designs nature inspired jewelry. I have to say that her work is quite unique, often inspired by animals (but cruelty free) and using natural elements and materials. She works a lot with feathers as well as natural beads such as turquoise. Check out those tribal feather earrings with turquoise beads for example (see below). Her work is Native American inspired at times and the silver dreamcatcher earrings I bought certainly are meaningful (to read about the meaning of dreamcatchers, click here).
If you know this site, you know that I often order jewelry from Etsy. Like, very often! I have never encountered any problems with any merchants or artists on Etsy. However, for the first time ever, I never received my order! Therefore, I sent a message to Emely (you can do that on Etsy directly) as the estimated delivery time had long gone. She was reticent at the beginning, she did not know me at all after all. The weird thing is that the package showed as having been delivered. I looked around the mail boxes (as I live in a condo), I called the post office. But nothing! So after some back and forth, Emely agreed to send me another pair for free. I got that one about 2 weeks later. The package had been opened for some unknown reason but the earrings were still tightly wrapped inside. Weirdest thing ever but I got my earrings!
Now, on to the silver dreamcatcher earrings!
Ok I have say that those earrings are actually quite sturdy. They are not flimsy made without being too heavy either. If you grew up in the ’80s like me, you might remember the era of humongous earrings, clip ons or not. I remember a cousin of mine (she was 13 years older than me) and her collection of earrings. As a child, I would sit in her room and look at all her giant hoops, clip on glittery earrings that went past my shoulder. And what did they have in common? They were so heavy! Those earrings here are just the right weight. They won’t go flying in the wind but you won’t end up with a sore back from bending over from the weight 😉
As one can see from the above picture, the dreamcatcher earrings are relatively long. My hand is not very big but the earrings are longer than the ones I usually wear (they are 5.5. inches long). So it took a few times to get adjusted to them. But the craftsmanship on them is awesome. The little arrowhead and feathers are well made and the turquoise beads are such a pretty color (a tad lighter than I expected but I ended up loving it). Love the design of the dreamcatcher too! Overall, those earrings are a hit. Well made, pretty meaningful design, nice color on the turquoise beads. They are longer than my other earrings (they go to my shoulder) but I got used to it (fyi: they might get stuck in your scarf if you are wearing one though).
Yes the shipping took longer than expected (it might be faster if you are in the USA though) but I would order from EmelyRose Boutique again. In fact, I am liking the tribal feather earrings more and more….. 🙂
What do you all think of the earrings? Do you have any similar ones? Anyone in your life who would like them for Christmas? Comment below and I will respond 🙂
