These purple lampwork bead earrings are a perfect match for someone who loves purple, color and one-of-a-kind jewelry! These beauties feature handmade lampwork beads from a Colorado artisan. While the beads are a set, no two beads are exactly alike as each one has it’s own unique pattern. They remind me of the Monet painting “Water Lilies” so that is what I call them. These matte beads have little metallic bits in them that give them a tiny sparkle. I have paired them with 8mm round and faceted Swarovski crystals in a deep color called Purple Velvet. Each of the many facets reflect light, giving these beads a nice sparkle.
The lampwork beads are hung on paddle wires that I hammered out of 20 gauge sterling wire. The lampwork beads are nestled between 2mm and 3mm round sterling silver beads and sterling silver Bali style spacers. Above all of those beads are the purple Swarovski crystals and all of them are wire wrapped onto sterling silver French ear wires with decorative sterling balls.
The earrings are approx. 2″ in length from the top of the ear wire. Photograph #4 has a US dime in it for size comparison. They are a moderate weight pair of dangle earrings.
These purple lampwork bead earrings will be sent on a Solana Kai Designs earring card, wrapped in tissue paper and placed in a complimentary decorative organza drawstring bag. They will be ready for you to open or to give as a gift!
