beach glass earrings


Wandering along the waters edge you can find small treasures if you look. Little pieces of glass from forgotten bottles, tumbled and tossed. I've made some beads to resemble those little treasures. 

Each little beach glass bead measures approximately 14 mm x 12 mm. They have been lightly etched for a frosted, sea glass look. They hang from sterling silver ear wires for a total length of approximately 40mm. 

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.
