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.
