This pair is in stock, but only one at the moment. I used a kidney wire to extend the length, but I could also see it dangle off a silver or gold hoop. Not only is it longer because of the bead embellished kidney wire, but it is also a two part wire wrapped earring! I wanted to take the soft gold foil bead (which is encased in translucent light aqua glass) and use silver plated findings and pins. This earring features amazonite and aquamarines, a bit of teal, a bit of translucent gold. They are about 3.25" long. They also are featured in the precious stones collection. It is a very delicate rendition using the "multiple metal colors" idea.
Foiled glass involves putting foil underneath the glass while making the bead (logical.) Other colors can be added or layered and the end product is a bead which glows.
