. . . . .

The beads in these earrings sparked my growing obsession with lampwork glass beads, and I think they are as beautiful as any I've made. These beads are true art pieces; each was painstakingly torched in Venice, Italy by a wonderful artist, Davinia Smet, whose studio we visited just recently. The stripe of blue glass really seems to GLOW in the very lowest light, a stunning brightest Caribbean-aqua-blue surrounded by earthy silvered ivory. The earrings are just perfect with Betty Brite's hand-crafted sterling leaf ear wires (so-called because of the tiny hammered "leaf" detail at the base).* These are year-round, all-occasion earrings that will turn heads and lift your spirits.

The 10mm lampwork centerpiece beads are nestled between 4mm Swarovski crystal bicones -- silver-grey on the bottom, and dark teal / Montana blue on top (4mm). The earrings are finished on top with 3mm finely corrugated sterling silver saucers and 2mm sterling silver balls, while the hand-hammered "leaf" detail finishes the bottom.

From the bend of the wire to the tip of the leaf, the earrings measure 1-1/3 inches. The handcrafted sterling silver wires extend another 2/3 inches. They can be made with longer wires (or traditional wires) if you prefer.*

Your earrings will be packaged in a gift box, along with a card that describes the beads & ear wires. Gift wrapping is free upon request.

PLEASE NOTE: The earrings purchased have been sold. Yours will be the same in design, with slight differences in the lampwork beads ~ Each bead is made by hand, and they vary a teeny bit by design (just in the wave of color that encircles the bead), but no more than the original beads. Please check each photo so you can see how the light changes the look of these earrings. Colors may also vary slightly on different computer monitors. Please don't hesitate to convo me with questions.

*I recently asked Lenka to make a longer version of these wires for the shop, and I'm thrilled with them. You can choose 2-inch wires like those shown, or 3-inch wires (for an additional $2.50). If you'd like even longer wires, they can be made for you, with about a 2-week wait.The handcrafted sterling silver wires are a vital part of the earrings design. If you prefer a more traditional ear wire style (e.g. fishhooks/shepherd wires, kidney wires, leverbacks), I can make a similar pair for you, with the ear wire of your choosing. Convo me for details. A small charge may apply for some wire styles.
