Smokies Earrings - $50
I don't often use glass that's variegated - as form is usually more important than surface decoration... but I have to say - these are stunning. Almost resembling a rock or horn... but - *it is glass*... with that sleek and gorgeous profile shape. Sterling silver findings as well. 2" in length
Crazy Shoe Earrings - $50
oh my... I love the personality here. Purple pointy toed earrings... with swingy round sterling earwires. These earrings are 2" in length.
I'm loving the sleek new shapes - and the fact that I've gotten rid of one hole! Beautiful Steel Blue Lauscha pendulum earrings with sterling silver findings... just the ticket! 2 1/4" from top of finding to tip of bead. Each earring weighs 5 grams.
Another pair of similarly styled earrings as those above. Lovely shades of color throughout this glass! Canyon - as it reminds me of the mist that settles into mountain canyons... and the varying shades of colors...
These are " long and are suspended from handmade sterling silver ear wires.
Sleek and stunning. Love the tapered length of these - and the slim profile. Less glass - less weight. Quite a statement! 2 1/2" from top of finding to tip of bead. Each one weighs 5 grams (the weight of two US dimes). Not so bad!
On an aside. Austin, back in 1894, purchased 31 moonlight towers - each illuminated a 1,500' radius bright enough to read a watch. OOH... more details here
oh my... I had to make these in this color, as it's sort of Texas Longhorn burnt orange... actually - the color is called Roof Tile, and every building on campus has these roof tiles! These earrings are 2" in length. Sterling findings with a pair of really fun new findings - that are POSTS. I can switch them out if you'd prefer wires... but I thought I'd change it up a bit... : )
Jet black - sleek in form, subtle in styling - loving the form. Length is ", sterling silver findings.

These started out as a variation of snowdrop flowers... the way the petals gently slump down... translated loosely over to transparent glass... because the thinness of the colored glass is beautiful and its delicate presence brings hope that spring is not far off.
I love the bronze color of these earrings - they are a much darker color glass that's been veiled over a core of white.. then they're etched to a velvety finish. The simple & joyful design is applied in the flame - with a very VERY thin piece of glass (.5mm) called a stringer. Control of the heat is so important here - as I like these designs to remain raised.. and these are. : )
Hollow beads sit atop paddles of medium amber - a study in the pairings of beautiful transparent glass. Sterling silver spacer and findings. These measure 2" from top to tip.
1/2" dia rounds of glass sport several moon-shaped orbs in a metallic blue on a field that has been etched while design remains glossy. All findings are handmade and are sterling silver. These earrings will dangle 1 5/8" from your earlobe.
Back by request - some of my favorites from years ago! A spray of raised dots in nicely soft pastels with occasional punctuation of base (non-color) black. Lots of presence, little weight!
Crisp - $45
Raised dot on jet black earrings. I noticed my mom had a pair of these on the other day - and I thought I should make more! 1/2"dia beads - 1 1/4" overall. Handmade sterling silver findings.

Old favorites never fail me... love the color combination and kind of Bohemian flavor. 1/2" beads dangling from hand made sterling silver ear wires.
These carved beauties are sure to stand their own! Carving on the surface adds a handmade feel to otherwise very sophisticated earrings. NOTE: this color glass transforms from pinky in incandescent or daylight to a pale lavender in fluorescent light. 1 1/2" from top to tip.
Love these - I didn't tumble them to polish up the nailhead - as the earthiness seemed to suit them so well. 1/2" rounds with small purple caps...
As always these in this color remain favorites of mine. I have to put some out there every so often or my life would seem odd. This glass is called Denim, and it's from the Czech Republic - I love the color!!
