Love these.  Cocoa Lauscha glass - with a fused fine silver wrap at the top of each earring... dressy - and oh soooo sleek!  These earrings have ONLY a top hole... lovely centered fine point at base.  This color is a VERY deep blackish brown - like the Dutch Cocoa Powder... mmmm.

Sometimes the surprise lies in understated things... This ginger colored glass is nicely neutral, yet sweet enough to flatter most skintones!  Elegant shape coupled with the silver wrap kick it up a notch and allowed it to be found in this category!

Simplicity... gotta love it.  I wore one like this recently and couldn't keep my hands off of it.  I knew it was there - but kept checking because it was virtually weightless.  18" cable necklace included... it has a very cool bayonet clasp((insert one end and twist it until it catched on the other end.)) (make sure you check it's locked after you put it on... as these are threaded over the clasp... and can come unthreaded and be set free!)... Three stunning hollow beads asymmetrically ordered - again - being "just enough".

Cityscape Bead Set - $115

The varied silhouette of this set reminds me of the skyline of NYC as evening settles into the city.  Gorgeous Lauscha glass' black shines beautifully in this set with varied blue/silvered carved bands encircling beads in this set - definitely a one-of-a-kind bead set & one of my very favorites!  This set measures 6 1/4"L it is temporarily strung.  The smallest beads are 3/8"D, next size is 1/2", then 5/8", and 3/4".  the hand shaped tall thin disks add a certain rhythm/punctuation to the set... lovely. 


What can I say...?
I mean lampwork can be clunky... yes - it's artisanal... but these are simply elegant.  They are suspended from handmade sterling silver ear wires - and fall 2" below your ear lobe.
