These delicate earrings calm the senses with Czech glass beads in soothing tones and tiny turquoise gems. A dreamy blue Czech glass rondelle tops a smaller, sparkly rondelle. A charm made of three round turquoise gemstones finishes the earrings, which hang from handmade sterling silver-filled ear wires and measure just under 2″ in length. They are extremely lightweight and can be worn with anything.
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.
Turquoise has been associated with luck, peace and protection. It is a traditional birthstone for the month of December.
Just as no two stones are alike, no two of these earrings will be the same. Handmade pieces will by nature be imperfect.
