Imagine a journey in which you stumble upon worn shards of an ancient tablet. These earrings have that feel. They are glazed front and back, and the back is stamped with a floral pattern. The bead is Czech glass.
These handmade earrings were made by me in my studio. Beginning with raw clay, the focal bead was formed, dried slowly, fired in a kiln to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit, dipped in glaze, and then fired again to over 2300 degrees Fahrenheit.
The glass beads were purchased, but I finished the wire wrapping and ear wires. The ear wires are made from antique brass. Need something hypoallergenic? I can easily switch these out, just ask! These artisan ear wires are 80 mm, or just over 3 inches, from the top of the ear wire to the bottom of the drop. They weigh 5.5 grams each. A nickel weighs 4 grams, and a quarter weighs 5 grams if you need a reference.
All items are one of a kind - each one is made uniquely for this shop, and is ready to ship! Orders are shipped within one business day and items are placed in an organza bag suitable for gift giving. As with all art jewelry, it should only be worn on occasion, never during activities that may cause damage.
