Dramatic dangles! Hand-forged ear wires in a leafy shape feature Bali-inspired blue lampwork beads with a batik leaf pattern. Wires are made from tarnish-resistant Argentium sterling silver, hammered to give texture and strength.
Lampwork glass is a term for beads made by hand by heating glass stick with a torch and gathering the glass on metal rods to form beads. Details are added by manipulating and layering the glass to form quite intricate patterns. These beads were created by a glass artist in CT, USA.
Size: Approx. 2.5" drop off of ear.
Argentium sterling silver is highly tarnish-resistant and nickel-free, making it the perfect material for earrings, especially for those with sensitive ears. Made in the USA, it is unlikely to tarnish, and if it does, it can be cleaned with a little warm, soapy water.
