Light Grey Lampwork Glass Earrings
Soft frosted grey glass on slim silver stems
Drop earrings made from lightly etched handmade lampwork glass beads. Simple and chic, this beautiful glass has a luminous quality to it and picks up the tones of its surroundings. Etched to a soft matt frosted finish and topped with sterling silver rounds, the glass is hung from elegant sterling silver stems and sterling silver earwires. Gorgeously understated.
Approximate drop length from earwire 28 mm (just over 1 inch) Lampwork beads approximately 10 mm wide (3/8ths of an inch)
Contemporary lampwork glass jewellery by glass artist and designer Carolyn Grant.
Handmade in my home studio in Cheshire, England, I create sterling silver earrings, necklaces and bracelets using my own handcrafted lampwork glass beads. Formed in a hot flame using a propane and oxygen powered torch, each lampwork bead is individually handmade and unique. My lampwork glass forms the focal part of my jewellery designs, each one a tiny little work of art. There is something hypnotic about working with hot glass, manipulating it in the flame and using a combination of heat and gravity to control the flow and create something beautiful. I learn something new every time I fire up my torch, and hope that my fascination with glass translates into my jewellery.
