If you love compliments, these are the earrings for you! Featuring a unique combination of techniques, this distinctive pair of earrings showcase a sparkling display of woven metal under layers of fused glass - creating an almost kaleidoscopic effect when you move. The twists of the wire behind the glass create the kind of brilliance normally associated with cut crystal and diamonds. The fused glass "raindrops" distort the look of the underlying woven metal, creating a piece guaranteed to get second looks.

To create these earrings, first I weave sheets of fabric from thin gauge wire using a medieval finger weaving technique. Then, I cut this woven metal fabric into smaller pieces to embed behind the shaped glass. The different shapes of glass both magnify the weave, giving it more definition, as well as collect the light, making the entire piece glisten. Enjoy!

Gold: I'm using both yellow and rose 14K gold fill in my designs. Gold fill is 1/20th gold by weight, so it's a good compromise in quality and price between 14K gold and gold plate.
