Black and red sputnik beads on a long silver ear wire.
Each little sputnik bead measures approximately 12mm x 13mm. They hang from elegant long sterling silver ear wires for a total length of approximately 55mm.
My hands made these beads. There is no paint on any of my beads, just glass upon glass upon glass. I use Effetre glass, a little CIM and occasionally Vetrofond. All my beads are kiln annealed, 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.
