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

Snowdrop Earring Selections

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. : )
