ocean nugget earrings


Imagine if you could scoop a handful of ocean and compress all the colours into a small nugget. Think how blue and green and sparkly it would be. These ocean nugget earrings have all the goodness of the seaside wrapped inside.

The beads for these earrings are approximately 18mm x 14mm. They are very organic in shape. They hang on handmade sterling silver ear wires for a total length of approximately 35 mm. All the findings are sterling silver.

Each bead is individually made by me! There is no paint on any of my beads, just glass upon glass upon glass. Each bead is 4 - 8 layers of glass. Around layer 3 I roll the bead in fine silver leaf, then encase it in more glass. When the bead is large I mash it flat so that the silver disperses. This is what gives my beads the shimmering transparency reminiscent of the ocean in sunshine.

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.
