These funky earrings get the party started with Czech glass beads in festive colors and tiny emerald gems. A turquoise Saturn or UFO bead tops a smaller, vivid green rondelle. A charm made of three round turquoise emerald finishes the earrings, which hang from handmade copper ear wires and measure just under 2″ in length. They have a groovy, retro vibe.
These earrings are part of our Tiny Treasures™ collection, featuring smaller and more delicate pieces made primarily of Czech glass with gemstones and crystals.
Czech glass has been renowned for centuries for its innovative and distinctive colors and finishes. Prior to the 1830s, these beads were painstakingly cut by hand with knives. Today, Czech glass beads are machine made, but no less fascinating. The seemingly endless selection of colors, patterns, textures and styles lend themselves to a vast array of unique jewelry designs.
Emerald is regarded as the traditional birthstone for May as well as the traditional gemstone for the astrological sign of Cancer. It is considered a symbol of truth and love, and is associated with the goddess Venus.
Just as no two stones are alike, no two of these earrings will be the same. Handmade pieces will by nature be imperfect.
