These are perfect for my sister in law - beautiful, black and silver. Arrived in a small box, beribboned and carefully sealed in a jiffy bag along with the other pair - Thank you. They are, as I said, perfect.

Bought for my niece for Christmas and frankly I want to keep them. She may not get them. We will see. Delicate and beautiful. Boxed with a ribbon. Beautiful, delicate and too good for me to give away...

Where to begin...I love everything about these earrings from the color, size, shape and design of the glass beads to the ear wires that have been designed so as not to fall out of my ears without my knowing. They are comfortable to wear all day and into the evening. Your packaging was a tribute to these lovely earrings. Thank you!

A lot smaller than I thought but SUPER cute!! I love it!
Passing time pleasantly...
From the moment I made my first pair of earrings I was hooked, my love affair with beads had begun.
I have a passion for artisan made lampwork glass beads and spend countless hours searching for just the right ones. I love the depth of colour, the mysterious swirls and intricate patterns and I’m truly awed by the skill of the glass artists.
I also love freshwater pearls and semi precious gemstones and to be able to combine all of these beads in my designs is a great delight to me.
My focus is on quality. I enjoy making each and every piece and want my buyers to feel they have a unique item that will become a cherished favourite to be worn again and again. Most of my designs are one of a kind, but no two pieces will be exactly the same.
The dictionary defines 'Beguiled' as ‘to amuse, charm or delight’, ‘to pass time pleasantly’, so there you have it, I’m truly beguiled by the bead.
