These lovely earrings have been made entirely by me in my home studio. The lampwork glass beads have been created with Italian glass, rolled in broken pieces of coloured glass (frit) and then shaped into a bicone shape. Then they have been annealed in a digital kiln for several hours in order to stabilise and strengthen the glass. From there they have been etched and then wire wrapped in copper findings and wire. The copper ear hooks have been coated with allergy shield in order to stop skin discolouration.
The actual glass measures 16mm across at widest point & is 16mm high. The length of the entire earring from top to bottom is 44mm.
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.
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.
