Droplet Earth Stones "Sahara" features my handmade lampwork glass headpins in a tear drop shape with stone texture.

Colors include: golden yellow, rainbow raku(amethyst, sea foam green, midnight blue, aqua, fuchsia, caramel brown, and pale yellow).

Design elements include: distressed stone texture

STATS:
Listing is for one pair(2) Droplet Earth Stones "Sahara" headpins similar to the ones shown. Due to their handmade and organic design nature, some slight variations is size, texture, and color may occur.

Droplets are aprox. 12mm tall by 7mm wide on 5"(12.7cm) 22 gauge dark annealed steel wire.

**Last photo shows some variations you will see from headpin to headpin. You will receive ONE pair of headpins in this listing.**

**Wire has been treated with Renaissance wax to prevent naturally occurring rust.** I recommend coating your finished wire wrapped headpins in Clear Guard sealer to protect the metal for a lifetime of enjoyment :)

Stone glass headpins are purposefully imperfect with their shape and textures to give them a very natural earthy stone feel. Glass has pitted textures and is acid etched to complete their matte look and satiny feel.

INSPIRATION:
Any good set needs some glass headpins to complete it. I just HAD to create some in this wonderful run of beads!

After perusing some pages on Etsy I was inspired to go back to some simple organic designs, but take them a step further by distressing the glass with texture and etching acid. The result is this wonderful collection of very organic stony looking beads that look like they have been excavated from an ancient archaeological dig site.

I am so excited about these fantastic new designs!

WHAT TO MAKE?
Glass headpins always make fantastic earrings or dangles for designs. I could see these with some natural stones or African trade beads.
