Red and gold swirl earrings, set on hypoallergenic niobium earwires.
This little beauties add a touch of sparkle to your outfit. The beads are handcrafted of glass and set on copper and hypoallergenic niobium wires. These dangle 1 1/2 inches from top of the wire to the bottom. The beads are just over 1/2 and inch. They weigh one ounce each.
I handcraft each glass bead in my studio with a torch and immediately put it into a kiln to stabilize the glass. This process of annealing usually happens overnight. The colors that you see come from glass rods that are melted and wound around a mandrel in layers and encased in clear glass for added depth. Many of my beads have fine silver, 99.9% pure silver, either in the beads or on the outside of the beads. This silver is specifically made for lampworking and comes from Italy. I primarily use Effetre glass, also from Italy.
Because of the nature of monitors some colors may vary slightly from what you see on your screen. I do my best to make sure that what I see on my screen matches what I see in natural lighting.
