Golden Key Lime Drops
I was so excited when these imported glass drops arrived from Germany, they went right to the top of my design ideas list!
Handmade by lampwork artisan, Karin Hruza (Beadfairy's Lampwork), these tube "drop" beads feature a sweet "key lime pie" appearance! Chartreuse glass, both clear and milky, are stacked and softly etched for a frosted finish, wrapped in 24k Gold foil and accented with Fine Silver droplets and clear glass dots. I decided to combine both silver and gold metals in my design and a pair of Tom Gronwall's handmade crystal clear "apple" glass spacer beads as accent.
Earrings dangle 2 & 3/4 inches from the tops of my hand formed Gold Fill earwires.
- Note: All earwires/earring hooks may be exchanged upon request--usually without additional cost.
I had so much fun photographing these earrings in my attempt to demonstrate their true color in various settings, and then I couldn't decide which photo I liked best! Please enjoy this mini-photo gallery :)
