These colors always knock my socks off. Denim transparent glass, gorgeous Lauscha black, and silvered glass - that's spiffed up into metallic shades of blue, green, and purples. Black disks measure 18mm dia and the strand measures 9 1/4 "L as strung. All mandrel holes measure 1/16"

As I have been striving for - to eliminate the hole... these earrings have been hand shaped and I've obscured the hole! Now - you can enjoy and appreciate the beauty of the denim blue glass all by itself! 1 3/4"L from top to tip.

Sweet silver topped Slender Pod Earrings in taupe. Nicely matched pair of hand shaped earring beads with four aligned wraps of fine silver fused to the glass beads at their tops. Epoxied sterling bails in place and handmade ear wires of sterling silver as well.
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!
Jet Bullet Earrings - $50
Beautiful glossy black reverse teardrop earrings...
elegant findings echoing the bead shape hold my easy wearing sterlings silver earwires.
Is this not a joy? I love the color combinations and the way the set has just enough black to make the cross just pop! 15mm square, 13mm round... the set measures 9 1/4" as strung. Cross measures 50mm x 38mm and has a 3/32" mandrel hole.
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.
New shape drapes its color vertically over the black paddle headpin. Ultra modern and very chic. All sterling silver findings - handmade glass headpins and ear wires. : )
Six 1/2" shimmering beauties. Encased cores of Palladium's silvery magic - carved on the surface to shimmer even more... great extenders for either bead set shown above... or below - heck, these are neutrals! All with 1/16" mandrel holes.
Black Stack Earrings - $50
Something different with these earrings - a bit of drama and daring. Stack of tapering size disks on a pair of glass headpins.
Again, dressy yet artisanal set of beads. 5/8" center carved shimmer bead flanked by two jet black freefall beads - and two pair of black rondelles and a total of six 1/2" carved shimmer beads. All beads have 1/16" mandrel holes.
