These lovely earrings have been made entirely by me in my home studio. The lampwork glass beads have been created with Italian glass which has a wood grain like appearance to it, the right earring is actually very orange not which isn't shown well in the photos. They have been annealed in a digital kiln for several hours in order to stabilise and strengthen the glass. From there they have been carefully wire wrapped in vermeil findings, resin coated gold plated bead caps and wire.
The actual glass measures 15mm across at widest point & is 12mm high. The length of the entire earring from top to bottom is 58mm.
Care instructions: Whilst each piece goes through an annealing process to strengthen the glass, do take care not to drop them. The piece is best cleaned by washing in warm soapy water gently. Polishing cloths are highly recommended to regain it's original lustre.
NB. Glass is notoriously difficult to photograph, most pieces appear more vibrant and full of life to what the camera can capture, whilst every effort is made to take a true photograph there may be minor differences.
If you have any further questions or require additional photos please don't hesitate to ask. I am a member of the Australian-New Zealand self representing artists (ANZ-SRA) and the International Society of Glass Bead makers (ISGB) which ensures you are purchasing a quality and ethically handmade product.
Thank you for supporting my passion.
