Orange Lampwork Glass Bead And Sterling Earrings

Starting to list a few items in my Artfire Store.  I made these beautiful orange lampwork glass bead and sterling earrings that would be great for the upcoming fall season or halloween if you are dressing up.  They would be great with your favorite jeans or a night out on the town.  Hope you enjoy them!

My Introduction

I wanted to take a minute to introduce myself to you and tell you a little about myself.  So here goes:

My name is Charlotte Hayes and I create handmade lampwork beads and handcrafted jewelry designs.

I live along the Texas Gulf Coast in Alvin which is about 30 minutes south of Houston and Hobby Airport.

I am a member of Self Representing Glass Artists - SRA H98 which means I create my own handmade lampwork glass beads with my propane, oxygen set up and my Carlisle Mini CC torch. I us my Glass Hive Kiln to anneal my beads overnight to add strength and durability. I clean them using my diamond bit dremel.
