Mesmerizing are the colors that emanate from within the glass globes. Flecks of gold stippling are interspersed though out each cabochon sphere. This allows you to see both green and gold in the face of each stone. Delightful Blue opalescent pearlized flakes of color sparkle and glimmer with a beautiful sheen or luminescence whenever viewed from different angles. Depth of stone and pieces show in side view photos.
Brooch features three half orbs of glass placed within deeply etched swirling ribbons that are peppered with bright amber rhinestones. Earrings consist of glass half spheres framed with twisted etched branches that have three bright amber rhinestone accents.
