Artisan Boro Glass Lampwork Beaded, Swarovski Crystal, Sterling Silver Dangle Earrings.
The Boro Lampwork Beads are U.S. Artisan handcrafted and are properly kiln annealed - the lampwork artisan resides in NY. Boro glass shifts color (and is most vivid in direct sunlight). The Beads measure a petite 6 mm (1/4 Inch) x 12 mm (1/2 Inch) and are a beautiful blend of Mottled Color - Pine Green over a creamy ivory base and just a touch of iridescence) - with an applied technique of adding glass droplets around the near finished bead and then melting them down until the bead is smooth - adding additional (pools) depth and dimension to the bead(s). Accented with Bali Sterling Silver and Swarovski Crystal (in Fern Green).
Hand wire wrapped on Sterling Silver and dangling gracefully from Sterling Silver Eurowire Leverbacks, these beautiful One-Of-A-Kind earrings measure just over 1 1/2 Inches in Length.
(small white spots / streaks on the beads are only photograph reflection spots and do not actually appear on the beads - nor do any of the darkened / black spots on any of the sterling silver - these are only reflections from my camera)
If you are new to Glass Lampwork Art, each bead is Individually hand crafted by heating solid glass rods to a molten state - the beads are created by wrapping and layering the molten glass around a steel rod (which becomes the bead hole). Depending on the skill of the Glass Lampwork Artisan, the end result can be phenomenal ! Lampworking involves carefully manipulating hot molten glass ... and no paint or painting is involved !
