Beach Glass Inspired

We often get asked if these beads are beach or sea glass because they really have that worn, tumbled and frosted look of such. They are glass, but have been crushed down and are recycled from bottles, window panes and stained glass artist scraps that include Dichroic Glass. The glass is crushed, then pit fired in ceramic molds.
We use these beads in our Woven wire jewelry, with Hemp, with Beach stones.

These #29 Frosted Glass Earrings are a great accessory to many of our pieces. We even have them in some of the popular Pantone 2011 Spring Fashion colours!
They aren't any heavier than most standard earrings out there. Nickel free, carded and include stoppers. (click on the photo for a closer look)
choose Ambers (yellow, pinkish yellow, amber, brown), Greens (light, aqua, apple, peridot, dark), and Blues (light, turquoise, cobalt, ultramarine). Very limited supply of pink and orange.
