Many of the most beautiful, magical glass beads in the modern marketplace come from the Czech Republic, and I just can't get enough. I'm particularly drawn to carved beads with Picasso* accents, like those featured in these earrings; these are gorgeous ovals of rich cerulean blue, the sort of beads that turn heads and start conversations all by themselves, and create truly special earrings. These earrings are for the artistic individual, a woman who has a unique sense of fashion and beauty; they're contemporary accessories that will transcend trends and will never go out of style.

The gorgeous centerpiece beads are 14mm tall ovals of opaque glass. Their color, cerulean, is considered a pure blue, azure, like the blue of the sky. The earthy brown and rusty Picasso finish* has been hand-polished off the face of the bead to reveal the gorgeous glass beneath; inside the oval remains a primitive starburst in which the Picasso coating provides contrast and depth to the rustic design.

Beneath the ovals, 4mm sterling silver flower spacers twirl upon 2mm sterling silver balls that extend from the handcrafted sterling headpins and provides an elegant accent to the bead pendants. 6mm silver beads, embossed with a rope design sit atop the blue beads. The silhouette is a simple one, as the beautiful beads create plenty of complexity.

Bead-to-bead, the earrings measure 1". They measure 1-2/3 inches from artisan-crafted sterling silver French ear wires

I will send your earrings in a gift box and organza gift bag (unless you prefer reduced/recycled packaging materials), accompanied by a handmade card that describes the beads & wires. Gift wrapping is free upon request, and I am happy to mail your present directly to the recipient, accompanied by your personal note on a special card. Be sure to include pertinent details (e.g. mailing address, message, etc.) at checkout.

*Picasso beads have a colored -- usually with an earth tone base -- speckled or variegated coating; most of the time, the bead is carved so the interior color is revealed, while being framed with the Picasso coloring. The name "Picasso" is derived from the notion that the beads look "painterly" and artistic. Many of the new, VERY artsy Czech beads are all the more beautiful because their Picasso coating gives them the look of rustic, hand-formed, fired pieces.

**I am happy to change your ear wires upon request. Please drop me a line prior to purchase. A small charge may apply for some styles.
