To match Day 2 of my 30/30 challenge, the Stormy Skies pendant. At the time it had rained constantly. While the weather is improving I do still like a good stormy sky, seeing those thunderclouds roll in and feeling the wind freshen while you sit and wait for the deluge.
On day 2 I made both a matte and a gloss pendant. The matte is the clear winner, it suits the stormy theme so the earrings are matte as well.
My hands made these stormy skies earrings. Each handmade bead measures approximately 15 x 15 mm and they hang from sterling silver ear wires. The total length of the earrings are approximately 30 mm.
My hands made these beads. I use Effetre glass, a little CIM and occasionally Vetrofond. All my beads are kiln annealed, thoroughly cleaned and inspected. There is no paint on any of my beads, just glass upon glass upon glass.
Please remember the jewelry looks larger than life in the pictures which is why it is important to check the size. I have tried to capture the colours as accurately as possible but many monitors vary.
