Olive Artisan Glass Beads Mixed Metal Earrings

in: Earrings



Olive Artisan Glass Beads Mixed Metal Earrings ​  Gorgeous disc beads in a translucent "olive" green by artist Julie Burgard (Outwest Beads) are the inspiration for these earrings. I love the edges on these round discs - so rustically unique! I topped these artisan beads with my hand made solid copper bead caps - textured, hand cut, formed, and oxidized. I wrapped the glass discs in sterling silver, added some silver beads, and two more gorgeous artisan glass beads in a frosty, silvered white by artist Jenelle Aubade of Beads and Botanicals.    

The metals have been buffed and polished by hand, and tumbled to achieve a pretty, rustic patina. The earrings are not heavy - very comfortable to wear the entire day.  They measure approximately 2" in length from the top of my hand forged,solid sterling silver copper ear wires to the bottom of the earring. I even adorned the ear wires with some copper beads and sterling wrapping to further augment the mixed metals.

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.


NOTE: 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these earrings will be donated to Miracle Horse Rescue, a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for helping me help those who cannot help themselves!
