Yellow and Red Dot Earrings

  • $38.00
These earrings, from Julie Bonney, hang about 1.5 inches long. Her lampwork glass beads are individually handmade at a torch and then annealed in a kiln overnight to make them strong and stable. She makes her beads using soda lime glass (also known as soft glass) rods that come from Italy, Germany, China, and the U.S, which she shapes and decorates at the torch. Her designs include sterling silver ear wires and often incorporate Czech glass beads, Swarovski crystal, and semiprecious stones such as turquoise, lapis, citrine, and pyrite.
