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

Colors include: frosted clear and webbed ivory

Design elements include: webbed and silver ivory, distressed stone texture

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

Droplets are aprox. 12mm tall by 8mm wide on 4 1/2"(11.43cm)(not including glass droplet) 22 gauge dark annealed steel wire.

**Wire has been un-treated so that artists may add their own patinas, or coatings.** I recommend adding a protective coating of permalac or clear guard sealer and renaissance wax to your wire to prevent naturally occurring rust.**

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.

WHERE CAN I FIND MORE?

All of my art glass beads are handmade by me in my home studio. All beads are kiln annealed with a digital controller for strength and durability so they can be enjoyed for a lifetime. I only sell first quality beads that are all carefully inspected before they are shipped to your door.
