Rusty red cone shaped borosilicate glass and silver earrings
These earrings are made using borosilicate glass cone beads and sterling silver french earring clasps and jump rings.These lovely and unusual beads are 12mm wide and 12mm tall in a hand-formed cone shape. They are in a rusty red with gold and iridescent flakes of blue and a sandstone bead.
These beads are carefully and artfully handcrafted of borosilicate glass, the same durable glass as used to make Pyrex products.
Each bead is carefully made and annealed in a kiln at over 1000 degrees Fahrenheit which makes for a stronger more durable bead. The higher temperatures are also responsible for the rich natural colors characteristic of Unicorne glass beads I use. Please note that due to the handmade nature of these beads the color may vary slightly from the photo.
