Round Sea Breeze Drop Earrings

£49.00
Description
Pale blue seas greet transparent blue skies in these pretty sea breeze inspired glass lampwork drop earrings by Julie Fountain.

The glass beads with their decorated surface are individually handmade from molten glass in the unusual and highly skilled art known as lampworking.

During the process, brightly coloured glass rods are heated by a fiercely hot flame and manipulated by blowing and shaping while the glass is still fluid, in a design that incorporates Julie’s trademark swirling wave patterns of fine silver.

Afterwards each piece is annealed to remove the stress from the glass and to increase its strength. The process involves cooling the glass very slowly in a digitally controlled kiln.

Working from her studio in beautiful Malvern, England, Julie turns simple rods of glass into beautiful, hard wearing pieces of wearable art.

She’s as fascinated today as she was when she made her first bead. What originally started out as simple swirls of colour have evolved overtime into a distinctive style that has delighted customers the world over.

She has been teaching glass bead making since 2007.

Due to the very individual nature of these rather lovely earrings there may be slight differences in their composition from the images shown.

A unique and individual piece of quality glass jewellery handmade in the UK.

Complete with sterling silver findings. Gift-boxed
