Description
 

These unique Lavender Glass Bead Teardrop Earrings are individually sculpted by Pelindaba's Andrea Kiernan. Each intricate bead is handcrafted one at a time using colored glass rods and a torch fueled by oxygen and propane. After the bead is sculpted, it is properly annealed or set to cool slowly overnight in a digitally controlled kiln to ensure strength and durability.

Finally, the lampwork beads are transformed into wearable pieces of art glass when they are strung with sterling silver wire, findings and coordinating Austrian Swarovski crystals inside a sterling silver teardrop shaped frame.
Sold as a pair. The earrings are 5cm in length and 2.25cm in width and hang from sterling silver lever back hook ear wires. Each piece arrives packaged in a protective gift box filled with Pelindaba's fragrant organic lavender buds.

You are purchasing a unique, copyrighted work of art - no two glass beads are exactly alike!

Andrea's lavender beads have been featured in several publications, most notably in Bead & Button, The Glass Bead, Bead Unique, Bead Style, Stringing magazine and LAMMAGA, a Japanese lampworking publication. Books have also included her work, such as Bedazzled: Where Beads and Inspiration Meet and Bead Review 3, a volume "encapsulating a year's worth of compelling interpretations from the contemporary art glass bead movement". As a member of the International Society of Glass Beadmakers, Andrea's work has been included in the Convergence exhibit as well as Perspectives, a traveling show of contemporary art glass beads which began in Corning, NY, then moved around the United States and is currently on display at The Kobe Museum in Japan.

Each piece is created to order. Please allow 1-2 weeks for delivery.

5 of 5 These earrings are gorgeous March 23, 2017
Reviewer: Rebecca from Andover, MA United States  
I liked the description of the handcrafted beads, and their display within the teardrop silver hoop.  The earrings lived up to and exceeded my expectations.  They are light and easy to wear, and the beads are beautiful.  The lever-back hook makes sure they stay secure.  I love these earrings!
