Italian Glass and Brass

My dwindling collection of Italian glass beads was beckoning me. These 10mm round, frosted beads have gold foil embedded in them. I purchased them many years ago and was reluctant to use them. Why, you ask? Because if I used them, they would be gone from my collection. Then what would I do? Well, I finally got over that ridiculousness and the earrings have sold well for me this season. While I still find the beads beautiful, I'm definitely over my deification of them.

These earrings feature these wonderful beads in a glowing peach color. The glow comes from a combination of the foil and the matte finish. I topped them with lacy brass beadcaps and a contemporary Czech glass bead. I used antiqued brass leverback earwires. They are available in my etsy shop.
