Uniquely Distinctive, One-Of-A-Kind Italian Moretti Glass, Artisan Lampwork Beaded Dangle Earrings
The Lampwork Beads are U.S. Artisan handcrafted and properly kiln annealed (the Lampwork Artisan is located in Georgia). The Lampwork beads measure just under 1/2 inch in height x just over 1/2 Inch in Width, are a fantastic blend of internal color and external design work ... internally, a core of streaky blue greenish teal, heavily encased in clear glass, with additionally adorning raised dimensional swirling in clear (like undulating waves rolling on the sea) ... hand wire wrapped on Sterling Silver with accenting facet cut Swarovski Crystal (in Sunflower Yellow and Clear).
Suspended from Sterling Silver Eurowire Leverbacks, these beautiful earrings measure 1 7/8 Inches in Length - or just shy of 2 Inches
(Photographed in natural lighting - small white spots / streaks on the beads are only photograph reflection spots and do not actually appear on the beads - as well as any black "pinpoint" spots on the Sterling Silver - which are only reflections from my camera - and do not actually appear on any of the sterling silver)
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 !
