I made these earrings at least 1 - 1/2 years ago...maybe longer. It was when I'd first started playing with fine silver and fusing, and I was a lot more brave and willing to experiment. I'm not really sure if I'll make another pair like these (I have a few more that I made with different designs, but the same concept...also not listed yet).
While lampwork artists use fire to create their beads, after the beads are finished more fire can crack them, and even discolor them. So fusing wire with the lampwork in the design can be a challenge. Somehow I managed to not crack too many beads in my quest for this design.
Remember that all purchases help support Saving Shelter Pets, now through August 26, with 20% of the purchase price being donated by participating Etsy shops.
This fundraiser has inspired me to pull out some of my older work that never quite made it into my shop and get it listed. I just need to find the time to edit all the photos I've been taking.
