I love this set because it has an old rich feel to the colors - and the textures.... ancients beads - heavily wrapped with fine silver pair nicely with the nailheads and the organic feel of the blossoming colors in this set. Pendant is appx 1" in diameter and has the sterling bail expoied in place. 1/16" mandrel holes on all beads but the cobblestone/silver wrapped beads - which have 3/32" holes.
Fun silvered glass set - average size 13-15mm dia all with 1/16" mandrel holes. Cute little heart to cap it all off.
Casually fun earrings in silvered glass and color dots... suspended from sterling silver findings - these single hole earrings delicately dangle 2" from your earlobe.
Silvered Gl;ass Lentils wrapped and accented with silvered ivory for a centuries old feel.
I've been told these earrings look HUGE... trust me, they're not. The bead measures 30mm L, and is 11mm at widest. add another 15mm for the earwire.
These came about during a lengthy torch session aiming at getting a matching pair. The color evolved and I will (honestly) never get the same reactions again. Sterling silver findings, lovely fun, & beautiful earrings.

One set still available, 5/8"D silvered glass rounds with 3/4"D tall thin disks in black. 1/16" mandrel holes.
I have one of these that I wear all the time. Seems to go with everything I own!
Wonderfully raspberry round Hot Moon Earrings revel in the simplicity of form & color. Sterling silver findings.... sweet.
Dollop of silvered glass lovingly shaped, tortured in the flame to coax the bluezy color and sheen of this magic glass... epoxied sterling silver bail... just waiting for you!
I have three pendants in Denim, but didn't get a good image - if you're interested - I'll be trying to get another shot of them... : ) email me at email@example.com if you're interested... still working on this.
Denim orbs dotted with silvered glass as a cap. Epoxied bails to which handmade chain link is attached - then to the earwires. Delicate
Similar to above, minus the chain link... so a little shorter! Rounds of glass dotted with silvered glass to top them off. Suspended from sterling silver ear wires. Epoxied bail from which to hang...
Lovely Pendant #4 - $48ea
Four lovely pendants - all have an epoxied sterling silver bail in place... the glass is a luscious color - like a pinky amber rose - but not quite.... but lovely lovely lovely! I have four of these - please let me select one for you - as they are all pretty similar.
With silvered glass golden/pinky/purple dots... measures: appx 1"w x 1 1/2"H (not counting bail)
These pendants have a base of peach glass dotted with clio... which is amber based and when reduced shows a silvery pinky/purple. Sorry they come off as more amber than peach... epoxied sterling silver bail in place...
aapx 3/4"w x 1"H (not counting bail)
Lovely Pendant #3 - $50
This one is interesting. I've veiled the purple over a colorless core - as I wanted light to pass through the glass and release the color.... so - it's darker at the edges - because when I shaped it - the darker glass was the topmost layer - and and and.... same wonderful "silvered glass" dots as a virtual cap... epoxied sterling silver bail in place...
measures:1 1/2"H x 1 1/16"W (not counting bail)
This is one of two that I have... it's glorious and encased in a layer of clear to amplify and protect the design. Made of silvered glass on a base of black... with silvered ivory and feathering... resembling the flukes of whale... IMHO... I've always loved this, and had planned to eventually set it and... and... and... but, I get easily distracted - so, am putting it up here for you!
A little sumthin' sumthin'....wonderfully new... evolution of the disk, to the splat, to the petal. Coveted mysterious silvered glass colors bloom in colors ranging from earth, purple, magenta, teal to electric blue. New delicate shapes offer an amazing presence - very little weight. Lentilized pendant with stylized cap and matching petals pair for earrings. VERY cool & unique.
Gorgeous shimmery silver wrapped then encased beads. 1/2"D with 1/16" mandrel holes. Select color shade preferences... please.
Shimmery silvered glass - like moonlight on the ocean - wrapped with silver wire and encased in clear. Suspended from sterling silver ear wires, 1 5/8" drop from pierced earlobe.
I love making cabochons, but I don't enjoy setting them. Over the past few weeks, I've found a way to make them differently - and make them as pendants - I'm experimenting with the silvered glass... and of course, silver. These are a nicely wearable size and will slip over your favorite chain. the back is black - and plain, and there is no hole other than the one shown on the front of the pendant with the silver ring.
Glorious encased silvered glass beads in varying versions - all coordinating with the earrings and pendants offered here today. This dozen measure 1/2"D and have 1/16" mandrel holes.
Revisiting this fun style.. but in pendant form! 33mm dia.
A few years back I made a series called "Comic" This is the same idea, only this time encased and as a pendant. This measures 31mm diameter and has a nice sterling silver hanging ring - so just slip it onto your favorite chain. The pendant is a variation of a cabochon... as it's domed - with a nice lens of clear over the design... but has a flat back and no hole other than the one for the ring.
I love how these beads turned out! These are 1/2" diameter beads with mandrel holes that measure 1/16". All these beads have silvered glass cores and some have inclusions of mica, palladium or fine silver wire - held just under a thin layer of clear encasing glass. Lovely, just lovely. : )
Jetstream Earrings - $50
These are available, and I will do remakes! for $50. These have a very subtle metallic sheen on the blue, are wrapped in silver, then encased in clear. 1/2" diameter, wired onto handmade ear wires. They dangle 1 1/2 " from earlobe.
Up above the clouds where things are so blue and clear. This set seems a bit more high tech than my norm. I love the sheen of the glass just under the uber thin encasing glass layer that holds the silver wires in place. 1/2" diameter beads with 1/1" mandrel holes. Stunning.
