"Solar Flare" features my handmade lampwork glass headpin pairs in a tear drop shape with a silvery ivory band and bubble button accents.

Colors include: intense orange, rainbow raku, silvered ivory.

Design elements include: bubble button dots, silver threads.

An ivory droplet drips into a silvered ivory band tipped with a vivid orange bottom. Rainbow button bubbles with a trapped mirror inside adorn the tops.

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

Droplets are aprox. 10mm tall by 8mm wide, Paddles are aprox. 12mm tall by 7mm wide on 4 1/4"(10.79cm)(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.**

INSPIRATION:
I was creating a special gift for my friend Karen for Christmas and was making her some head pins similar to this style in red, or so I thought... When I pulled them out of the kiln it turns out I had grabbed an orange rod instead of a red one(the rods look similar)! I ended up with these fantastic VIVID orange tipped beauties. This serendipitous event lead to this little run of headpins.

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.

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.
