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)
