Stylish earrings with blown glass beads on 0.8mm sterling silver wire
My beads are hand crafted in the hotshop in a similar manner to sticks of rock candy. I start with a bubble of glass and then layer it up with multi coloured powders and more glass to create patterns. Whilst hot the glass is then drawn out into a thin hollow tube before annealing. Once cold it is cut, ground and fire polished to create the beads.
The earrings are presented in a glass vial.
Size: length c.40mm, bead diameter c.15-18mm
