Picasso Glass Handmade Lampwork Tanzanite Crystal Dangle OOAK Earrings
These distinctive long earrings of Czech table cut glass, Swarovski crystals and artisan crafted lampwork are perfect for the discerning woman who loves unique jewelry. The overall make of these earrings contains two handmade links which I have named "Painted Earth". For the first link I used sleek and smooth handcrafted lampwork glass beads made using opaque Painted Desert Odd glass by Vetrofond. This is a gorgeous streaky color that is unique and whimsical as a desert breeze and were handcrafted by Charlotte of Covergirlbeads. Resting on top of the lampwork bead is a small Swarovski tanzanite crystal bicone topped with a tiny antique silver plated bead cap by TierraCast. Below the lampwork is another Swarovski crystal in a light smoky topaz shade. For the second link I cam across these wonderful Czech rose sandstone Picasso table-cut glass beads. The Czech Republic are masters of unique finishes. The glass bead is a streaked cream and pale lavender and the Picasso finish is a light brown. The glass bead is then polished to remove the Picasso finish which lets the underlying glass shine through. Truly an amazing piece of work. On top of the Czech table-cut glass bead I added another Swarovski crystal in a lovely tanzanite color. The entire earring dangle is hand-wrapped and attached to .925 sterling silver ear wires which have been embellished with a Swarovski crystal in light smoky topaz.
The overall length of these earrings is just shy of 3 inches or 7.6 centimeters in length. They will come packaged in an organza pouch which is perfect for storage or gift-giving. As an added bonus I am including a complimentary pair of rubber earring guards. These are perfect to prevent loss of your earrings.
Caring for your earrings: Use the basic rule of thumb for all jewelry. "Make it the last thing you put on, and the first thing you take off". Avoid spraying perfumes directly onto your jewelry which may cause discoloration. Regular cleaning is part of taking care of semi-precious stones. Use a damp cloth to wipe the surface - spot clean only.

Note: Please be aware that not all monitors will show colors exactly the same. The colors may appear lighter or darker based on the type of monitor you have. As I edit my photos I ensure they are as exact as they can be to my jewelry pieces. Natural and artificial lighting can enhance or diffuse shades of stones and crystals as you wear them. I also use different backgrounds in my photos so that you can see some of the color variance. Enjoy!

All of my sterling silver earrings are pure .925 sterling silver ear wires, posts or leverbacks. I also use silver-filled ear wires by TierraCast. The colored ear wires are either copper, brass or Niobium. The findings used are either .925 sterling silver, silver-plated brass, copper or pewter. I have been assured by my supplier that they are lead & nickel free. Most are made in the USA by TierraCast.
NOTE: Any crystals, such as the Swarovski or Preciosa, contain small amounts of lead which is not harmful.
