Twisted Sterling Silver and Artisan Glass Earrings

in: Earrings



Twisted Sterling Silver and Artisan Glass Earrings  - I have not made this style earring in quite a few years - though it is one of my favorites! I took round, thick sterling silver wire, ran it through my rolling mill to make and square, and then twisted it by hand. I just love the texture this creates! I sandwiched two GORGEOUS artisan made glass lampwork beads (by Spawn of Flame) between a of couple layers of sterling silver beads (made by artists in Bali, Indonesia), and wired them to these twisted sticks.

The sterling silver has been blackened, then polished by hand to bring out the highlights -- this adds wonderful depth to the silver. These earrings are long and slender - not heavy at all - and have wonderful presence!

These earrings measure approximately 2 7/8" in length from the top of the ear wire to the  bottom of the earring.

All metals in this design are .925 sterling silver.

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.
