Day 6 - Stripey ocean earrings
Softly etched, these look like striped sea glass. They have an inner glow, subtle in their simplicity yet stunning when together. This is a new shape for me to play with, I like them a lot. Not only do I like the shape, I love the subtle stripes.
Also new is this earring shape. While they look longer than my regular earrings, they are the same length as most of my collection. These are really comfortable to wear as they don't swing around too much. (great under a bike helmet or hat!)
Each stripey tube measures approximately 20mm x 8mm. They are on a handmade sterling silver rectangular earring hook. This hook is made of 1mm wire, it is the same thickness are my tear drop hooks. If you have very small holes you may find this too thick. The total length of the earring is approximately 40mm.
Each bead is individually made by me! I use Effetre glass, a little CIM and occasionally Vetrofond. There is no paint on any of my beads, just glass upon glass upon glass. All my beads are kiln annealed so that they are durable, thoroughly cleaned and inspected.
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.
