Like finely aged amber/copal ... that was what first drew me to beads... I bought some beads on eBay made from copal - the rest was history...
Fresh and orange melba colored. I'm loving the clean lines of these earrings... of course you'll be seeing more next week, because that's how I work...
For now - I have these beauties in Melba and Pistachio... They're 1/2" rounds of color with only one hole... wrapped with fine silver - fused to the surface in the torch flame... annealed and then polished to a mirror finish. I've epoxied the findings and they swing happily from my handmade sterling silver ear wires. All in all, these are a winner!

Seriously statement earrings! Sleek new findings are mirror finished silver with long wires, the findings gently pull back against your earlobe and part of the square of silver hide tortured pierced ear lobes. The Cobalt blue glass beads almost have a life of their own, and are stunning in color! Overall they dangle 1 5/8". All findings are sterling silver and handmade by me. : )
I love these. So fresh and delicate - handshaped tapered dropelets are wired onto very cool findings... these earrings are post earrings - and weigh virtually NOTHING. Cool new findings are perfect for those of us who have tortured our pierced ears over the years. Cantilevered findings hide most of the damage! ; ) These have a drop of 1 1/4"

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!

it just seemed fitting.... nicely matched pair - shapewise, nicely coordinated pair colorwise.
Terracotta & Purple - fun. 2" from top of finding to tip of bead. FYI - each earring weighs 4 grams.
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. : )

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!!
