These Swarovski crystal lampwork bead earrings are perfect for a person who is looking for a pair of earrings that expresses their artistic side, are unique and colorful, yet go with just about any outfit! I call these gorgeous sterling silver, lampwork bead and Swarovsk crystal earrings “Water Lilies” as the handmade lampwork beads remind me of the Claude Monet painting by that name. These beads are colorful yet subtle and are handmade by a very talented Colorado artisan so no two beads are exactly alike.
To add visual interest to these lovely Swarovski crystal lampwork bead earrings, I used 20 gauge sterling wire to create hammered paddle wires on which to suspend the beads. They are nestled by 2mm and 3mm round sterling silver beads and sterling silver Bali style spacers. Above those are 6mm faceted bicone Swarovski crystals with an AB coating. AB stands for “Aurora Borealis” which is a type of finish placed on one side of a gemstone or crystal, adding an iridescent rainbow effect that appears in the light. It is hard to capture that effect in a photograph but you can see it in the left earring in the first photograph and in both earrings in the fourth photograph.
Each earrings is wire wrapped onto sterling silver French ear wires that have 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.
The earrings will be sent on a Solana Kai Designs earring card, wrapped in tissue paper and placed in a complimentary decorative organza drawstring bag.
