These blue glass earrings feature delicate patterns of white, brown and a glint of red, all formed by added glass powders. After kiln firing the glass was shaped into rectangles and suspended from silver coloured hoops.
These earrings were created by kiln-fusing various colours of glass at over 800 degrees Celsius to create a unique mix. The newly fused glass slab is then put through a series of cold-working processes, involving a glass saw and a mechanical grinder. A phase of sanding by hand precedes the final kiln firing to achieve ultimate translucency. Once cooled and cleaned up, the glass and silver are secured together using industrial strength structural glue.
The jewellery accents are made entirely from glass and all of the metal findings are lead and nickel free.
These earrings are presented on a branded card wrapped in tissue paper and inserted within a hand stamped navy blue pillow box. All outer packaging is also eco-friendly, with materials sourced locally in the UK to minimise carbon footprint.
All sales will be dispatched by Royal Mail within 1-2 working days of purchase.
