Yes - brings memories of that song from long ago, huh? But these beads bring a pop of color like no others here... with a two time pop of that wonderful cranberry pink... (matching earrings here tonight!). This set measures 7"L as strung, all beads with 1/16" mandrel holes.
Fun swingy pair of cranberry glass tiles, handshaped and perfectly matched. Swinging from small sterling silver chains - attached to sterling silver posts for a change This design repeats the sterling ball at base & again at top.
Earrings hang 50mm from earlobe.
My favorite this week, partly because the olive transparent tiles are not square. They're slightly wider than tall... because all these are hand shaped - I'm allowed to alter the dimensions. : )
Suspended from handmade findings - these sporting similarly shaped hammered squares just above the glass bead. These hang 1 1/2" from your earlobe and all the findings are made from sterling silver by me. : )
These were slow going - as I mentioned in my blog - these are all hand shaped - and require many repeated actions putting the glass back into a square position - as it constantly wants to round out. I love the flexibility of freely shaping these - as I can alter the dimensions to what it pleasing to me. Lovely transparent glass colors... sans bubbles!! This set measures 9 1/2" in length as shown. All beads have 1/16" mandrel holes.
I made two pair of these 3/4" purple tiles, hand-shaped, no presses used here. What that means is that there was a lot of persistence used and patience, as when you flatten in one direction - it bulges in the other. But - eventually, it all works out. Loved the beauty of the glass so much I designed a new style of earwire just for them! (I have makings for two pair, the other will be very similar, but not exact. : ) These earrings hang 1 1/2" from your earlobe and will whisper sweet nothings to you when you wear them! LOL
Networking Fuchsia Set - $145
Glorious pop of color, fuchsia and purple are the cornerstones for this set - measuring 6 1/2"L, focal is 3/4"dia, smaller rounds 1/2" and the smallest rounds 3/8". Clear lentil and mica sparkling clear round add brightness. Focal has 3/32" mandrel hole, balance 1/16".
Fun findings with the popular droplet beads suspended just below the concave silver cup... modern - lightweight and oh so versatile!
These hang 1 1/8" from your earlobe and are hardly noticeable when worn!
Last week I watched as a friend took a pair similar to this and tried to estimate the weight in her hand... I know it's hard to judge size here - so I thought maybe I'd weigh these. They weigh appx as much as a penny each.
These are just beautiful. My favorite Denim blue glass - in petite slightly tapering columns just" long. Tied for second place in my weekly poll of what is my favorite! 1 3/4"L
They're "just delicate enough" - & not too much... Which BTW is very easy to do with lampwork!! Swinging just " from your earlobe when worn.
In an effort to think in the mode of mixed metals - these beads have copper, silver, palladium and of course silvered glass. I love the sheen and richness of the interactions. All measure around 1/2" in some dimension, working nicely side by side - all with 3/32" mandrel holes.
I can't forget the denim... LOVE this color and am always looking for ways to allow more light to penetrate this color - as it's prettiest that way. This design allows that - and also creates a shimmery silver look in the concave areas of the design. Suspended from handmade earwires of sterling silver. These will hang 1 1/2" from your earlobe.
Handmade cup capped tapering purple pillars lend a beautiful elegance to this pair of earrings. My handmade findings are unique and work to elevate these beads into a finished piece of wearable art. : D " long
Yes. Bright. Blink... smile.
I just had to pair these together... I'm sure you see why.
This set measures "L as strung, all with 1/16" mandrel holes except the hollow and large green focal which have 3/32".
SO SO loving this style earring... I'm going to try it in several color combos - (as I usually do) Sterling silver ear wires and headpins with a lampwork paddle of glass. These measure a daring 2 1/8" from top to tip and are amazingly LIGHTWEIGHT : )
Hello Pretty! These earrings are a bit larger than the normal 1/2" round... (LOL... seems I've strayed some from making the 'normal' round bead!!)... these are 5/8" dia and are suspended right below a cup shaped fine silver cup earwire.
I make all my own findings, and they have evolved over the years - lately I have been enjoying customizing them for each earring pair. : )
These earrings hang 1 1/2" from your earlobe and they make the extra pretty statement for those days when you just need to wear PINK!
Variation of the droplets that have, for years, been known to be the new little black dress of earrings! I've given them a special personality-filled earwire... and please DO consider these wearable art! LOVE these!!!!! 1 1/2" long and virtually weightless!
Right Rhumba Pod Pendant has ivory random dots and measures 58mm long x 21mm wide
Left Rhumba Pod Pendant has white dots and measures 50mm long x 17mm wide
These have a single hole and have a sterling silver bail epoxied in place... so - ready to wear!
Oh, am loving the pod shapes for these Pendants!!!!! Again, these love the camera and were actually a distraction to photograph, as they kept posing so perfectly - my CAMERA OCD had a hard time disengaging to get back to work!! ; )
Trying some new shapes here... with good old standard B&W. Oval tabular beads with a flattened top - suspended just below these handmade silver cup ear wires. These are 2" long.
AND.... if you are loving the pink, but wanted a longer earring - these surely will be calling your name tonight! Sleek pink transparent glass (matching) tapering columns hang 2 1/8" from ear lobe. Lovely with less weight.
