Details

These lovely dangle earrings feature Czech-made blue glass disk beads, Swarovski pearls, and carnelian beaded sterling silver ear hooks. The blue glass beads are aqua-toned and are edged in a rustic dog-tooth ornamental pattern with burnt orange accents that are nicely complemented by the carnelian beads. This edging gives them an ancient or a vintage look.

The glass disks are semi-transparent, with a pale "cascade" effect in their composition that loosely resembles single-peaked misty mountains. It's that effect that drew me to these beads. Although it is not precisely the same in both beads, the beads still work nicely together as a pair. I looked through many of this type of bead at the bead store to find this pair, as every bead had a different inner effect, from slightly to extremely different, and was one-of-a-kind. Because of the effect in the beads I chose, I have come to think of this pair as "Dream Mountain" earrings. :)

Bordering each Czech glass disk are TierraCast (made in the USA) daisy spacers (fine silver plate on pewter), with a silver-plated rondelle at the bottom of the dangle and a Swarovski pearl (4mm) at the top. Also, at the very top of the dangle is a hand-fashioned wire wrap.

The ear hooks are handmade sterling silver, with small (4mm) round carnelians decorating them. The silver wire is 20 gauge. I gently hammered the hooks in the front for added strength. Also, the wire ends are carefully filed for smoothness. The hooks come with earnuts, for added security when worn.

Lengthwise, this pretty pair measures around 2 inches long including ear hooks. Please see my photos for a side-by-side comparison with a ruler. The disk beads themselves are approximately just over 1/2 inch in length.

This is a simple but sweet pair of dangle earrings, versatile enough for daily wear or for a more dressy occasion.

Materials Used

Czech blue glass disk beads, Swarovski pearls (4mm), carnelian rounds (4mm), silver plate rondelles, sterling ear wires (handmade)

Policies

Welcome to Pretty Gonzo! Your visit is valued! I love jewelry, and what I make is the type of jewelry I would wear myself or give as gifts to friends and relatives. Every piece, however simple, is a little statement about the person wearing it, and I always hope that my jewelry will bring happiness to the person destined to wear it.

CLIP-ON and PIERCED CONVERSION: If you wear clip-ons, I can convert any pair of earrings in my shop into clip-ons for you at no extra charge. Just ask! I can also convert any clip-ons to pierced wires.

CUSTOM ORDERS: If you are interested in a custom order, please contact me. I will list your item(s) as "Reserved," including photos.

My shop's GALLERY section contains the listings of my sold items along with photos, so you can see my past work.

PLEASE NOTE: My photos are always of the actual items I am selling. Many of my jewelry pieces are OOAK (one of a kind), but even in cases where I do repeat a style, I always take new photos.


-----PAYMENT INFORMATION-----

I accept Paypal and Amazon Payments. Please note that you can securely use your credit card via Paypal even if you don't have a Paypal account.

RHODE ISLANDERS, PLEASE NOTE: By law, I must append RI sales tax to the cost of your purchase and pass it on to "the governor."

-----SHIPPING ADDRESS-----

PAYPAL: If you use PayPal, I ship to your address as shown by PayPal.

AMAZON PAYMENTS: If you use Amazon, I ship to your address as shown by ArtFire. Please make sure to include your shipping address when ordering at Artfire, as Amazon does not provide one.

In either case, please make sure your address is current. :)

If you are purchasing a gift for someone and have used his or her address for shipping, please let me know at the time of ordering. I will be happy to include a complimentary notecard with your shipment, in which I will write whatever message you would like to send. Also, please make sure the recipient's address is current.


-----SHIPPING METHOD-----

HANDMADE JEWELRY:

United States: Items are shipped First-Class USPS with Tracking (formerly Delivery Confirmation).

Other Countries: Items are shipped USPS First-Class Mail International. Again, you are responsible for any customs fees and/or tariffs.

Earrings are shipped on earring cards in small plastic bags, wrapped in decorated paper or gift bag, and then wrapped for protection in transit. Bracelets and necklaces are shipped in a similar way (but minus the earring cards).

VINTAGE ITEMS:

Most vintage items are shipped First-Class USPS with Tracking. The exception is vintage books, which ship Media Mail unless otherwise stated in the book's listing. Please note that Media Mail can take some time to reach you. I only select this form of shipping to offer you economical shipping with weightier books. If you prefer a faster form of shipping, simply contact me.

Vintage jewelry is gift-wrapped or gift-bagged and includes protective plastic bag and wrapping.

INSURANCE OPTION: If you would like postal insurance, please contact me. I will invoice you for the cost of insurance.

IN GENERAL: As someone who has made many online purchases, I know how nice it is to experience quick shipping from a seller. My goal is to ship your order promptly once I have received payment.


-----RETURN POLICY-----

I want you to be happy with your purchase. Always feel free to contact me about an item before buying, as no question is too minor. I'm pleased to help!

Returns are accepted if you contact me within 5 days of receiving the item. Also, I must receive the item no later than 2 weeks after its delivery to you. If you have a situation where this timeframe poses a problem for you, please let me know before ordering. Also, I do allow extensions for holidays such as Christmas and Valentine's Day, as some people buy early.

You are responsible for shipping with tracking (U.S.). Items should be in their original condition with their original wrapping and packing materials. Any earring cards or gift bags should be included.


-----REFUND POLICY-----

Refunds for Handmade Jewelry: I will refund for the purchase price minus shipping.

Refunds for Vintage Items: I will refund vintage items for the purchase price minus shipping.


-----OTHER POLICIES-----

Non-receipt: Tracking provides information on the item's progress to its destination, and I bring my shipments directly to the post office rather than using pick-up. I will do my best to help you if items go astray. Again, always make sure the shipping address you provide is current.

Damage: If an item arrives damaged, please contact me ASAP. I will repair/replace damaged handmade jewelry if you ship it back to me. Also, please see option for postal insurance above. I do pack items well to minimize any problem with damage.


-----COMMUNICATION IS EVERYTHING-----

I'd love to hear from you if you have any questions or comments. So please don't hesitate to contact me.
