These lovely earrings have been made entirely by me in my home studio. The lampwork glass beads have been created with American glass and then 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 sterling silver findings, Swarovski crystals and wire.
The earrings come to you gift boxed. Goods are shipped with an invoice enclosed. Please note however you are purchasing as a gift for another I am most happy to include a gift tag on your behalf at no charge and no invoice. Also if you would like to save a couple of dollars on shipping I can post without the box wrapped in tissue paper and padded bag. Just advise in the notes at the checkout your requests.
The actual glass measures 13mm across at widest point & is 13mm high. The length of the entire earring from top to bottom is 46mm.
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. Commercial silver dips are fine to use and also 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.
