Description

A pair of classic blue glass stud earrings with a satin finish to the glass, reminiscent of sea glass.

For these beautiful blue studs I have layered a rich transparent blue glass over an opaque pale blue glass to give a blue with depth.

The fused glass rounds measure 9mm across and are fixed securely to sterling silver backs. The earrings are presented on my signature card as shown and will come with a voile bag to keep them in.

Inspiration

I've always collected sea glass, and while shiny glossy glass is beautiful there is something special about the soft satin finish of sea glass. Imagine how pleased I was when I discovered that sandblasting and re-firing my fused glass gave it a similar look - but in any colour I wanted!

I make the glass rounds for these pretty studs by fusing a layer of transparent coloured glass over a different coloured layer of opaque glass in my kiln; then I sandblast them and fire in the kiln again to get the satin seaglass like finish. It is the layer of transparent glass and this satin finish that give these earrings such a beautiful subtle glow quite different from the more usual 'shiny' appearance of glass.
