Buttercream Czech Glass and Gold Fill Earrings - Beautifully faceted handcrafted Czech Glass in a rich, opaque buttercream color are flanked with gold daisy-styled Czech Glass spacers. The column styled earrings hang from gold fill ear wires. Please be sure to zoom in on the photos to capture the details up close and personal!

The earrings measure 1 1/2" in length from the top of the ear wire to the bottom of the earring. These are comfortable to wear all day long.

All metals used in this design are Gold Filled.  

Gold Filled vs. Gold Plated:  Not the same!  The amount of gold used in gold plated (GP) jewelry is less than .05%.  The gold is electro-plated to the base metal alloy (usually jeweler's brass). One tiny scratch on plated metal can expose the base metal.  The amount of gold used in Gold Filled (GF) jewelry is 100% more than Gold Plated - 5%.  The base metal alloy is literally sandwiched between two layers of gold. As long as one takes care of their GF jewelry, it can last a lifetime. To clean, without scratching it, use an untreated cloth or mild soapy water. Do not scrub the piece.

Jewelry is made using traditional metalworking techniques, including soldering, filing, sanding, texturing, polishing, and tumbling in my home studio. Jewelry comes wrapped in a cotton-lined gift box and ships quickly. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
