Classic earrings on a sterling silver French hook, blown glass beads wire wrapped with a crystal detail.
My beads are hand made in the hotshop in a similar manner to rock candy. I start with a bubble of glass and then layer it up with multi coloured powders and more glass to create patterns. Whist hot the glass is then drawn out into a thin hollow tube before annealing. Once cold the tube is cut, ground and fire polished to create the beads.
The earrings are presented in an aluminium tin with glass lid.
Size: length 40mm, bead diameter c.14-17mm
